This photoblog is my nature journal and travelogue. Many of my wildlife images were made in environments impacted by humans. My goal is to feature each animal in a way that allows the viewer to sense the essence of its life in the wild. The purpose of the accompanying narratives is to enhance awareness and appreciation of our natural world, as well as to inspire everyone to protect and care for it.

I think this is an outstanding image. very well done! I love the focus of the bird and what it's doing and the colorful blurred out background. I also think the tilt is interesting. Did you rotate the image or was it normally like this?

11 Jan 2013 12:59am

@Abena: Glad you like it, Abena. I did not rotate the image. Notice the vertical stem and the orientation of the leaves? These birds get into some amusing positions to eat those berries. Check out this collage from 2011. Thanks for your comment and question.
