Top Branch Birds for Feathered Friends

The theme for @nelinoeva 's Show Me A Photo contest in the Feathered Friends Community this week was chosen by @deerjay.

TOP BRANCH BIRDS

Looking through my photos I seem to have a lot of dead branch photos! Birds seem to often land in those tall old dead trees.

Many of my top branch birds become silhouettes against the sky.

This red tailed hawk found a top branch of a dead tree to rest in.

That cormorant photo is fabulous. It makes me feel like I am flying, the lines in it give tension and movement. The orange makes the other colors less subtle, gives the whole thing even more interest. Great work. Love these.

I really wish that they would pose! They usually move just about the time I am ready to take the picture.

hahaha same here, I take a bunch of pictures, then delete most of them, but some times it only takes the ONE, to get it right.

These are awesome Melinda! The Double Crested Cormorant is my favorite! I've only seen them in the water so it is cool seeing one in a tree. I love the silhouettes also and I think they look especially nice sitting on the 'top branch'! 😉💕
Ps..I did write this reply when I upvoted but neglected to actually hit the reply button..sorry! 🙂
