Fantastic shot =)

Wow, that is a fantastic pic! You definately have a talent there. I love watching The birds in my garden. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am now following you.

lisleman said...

You are right. In fact the simpler, the greater the joy. All it takes is a smile sometimes. Other times you might need to whisper in my ear.

A little bathing, a little stretching - feels so good!

Patricia said...

My goodness I love this photo. You seem to be so close to the subject. I'm curious how far away you were and what lens you used. Tripod? The colors in the photo are beautiful. Take care and thanks for the sweet comment you've left for me.

I love how animals savor every moment! This photo is a great catch of just that experience. And the macro/hazy background adds to the delight of enjoying this image. (There is a bird lovers' blog somewhere in which bird photos can be submitted by anyone for posting.)
Feeling the joy, Reena! Thanks!

Catherine said...

I refreshed my 3 bird baths this evening. My birds are enjoying the cool water with a refreshing drink tonight too!
