Never thought Id click a bird on a stick image.

But thats great how the elements work so well.

The flecks of yellow to the lichen , the reds to the buds and the whites to the berries , superb image, has an oriental feel.

Quality !

Brian, I know how you felt each time another UA was given...the feeling that your photography shines out
I thought my 10 was a rareity, but my goodness this was so exciting for you 13 UA's, but not a GEA or HC I find that unusual and begin to wonder how they judge now, especially on this of yours that is
simply magnificent!!
