Is it Spring Yet?

By Lillian  
Colin from earlier this year...
sifting through hard drives, came across cuckoo ones
and thought why not?

So here in the bird series... is a favourite of mine

Was going to Bushy this morning ...up and ready...05:00
and down came the rain, guess where I went back to?
going Wednesday instead

Thanks for stopping by

How obliging of your subject to spread it's wings like that......makes for a more interesting shot and allows one to see the patterns on the under surface of the wings.

Very impressive shot.

Crisp colours and detail against an out of focus, very appropriate background, provides an almost 3D effect. The timing of the shot with the tail feathers spread and the open wings just couldn't be better. An image I wish I had taken.

If the cuckoo sings a pretty song, he is just bragging about his beauty--which you have captured excellently here!
