And now for something completely different

By AlexAppleby
This is a magpie in flight... but I only caught its tail. I like the colours but not so sure about the photo as a whole. Was going to bin it but thought is se what you all think first!!

Many thanks for your reaction to my last upload. You are all very kind.

Interesting and different... never seen iridescent feathers look quite like that.
Works for me as an abstraction.
Maybe crop it ( down from the top and in from the left, losing the very dark bits) to bring that out a bit more.

I've never seen closely the tail feathers of a magpie, although I get many of the birds in the garden. Interesting to see.
