From the archives again, taken last year in a dear friends garden on a very wet and dreary day. This Blackbird was scurrying around searching for grubs and worms bought out by the wet weather. I hope you like him, best viewed large.
Again many thanks for all your kind comment and votes, they are all very much appreciated.
Best wishes to one and all.
Steve

Excellent tones in this and I really like the depth of field which has thrown the background plenty out of focus but kept it recognizable and part of the scene.
