SkyWatch Friday

I was trying to take a photo of this little bird sitting on the branch, and captured it as it hopped off before it had had a chance to spread its wings. I didn't get a good shot of the bird but I liked the dark contrast with the sky in the background and decided to share it for this week's SkyWatch Friday.

This happens to me sometimes when I take a picture and another bird will fly into the picture with its feet out ready to land.

I love this shot Denise...that is a moment of such expectation and hope isn't it? the moment before one spreads their wings?

whoa, this came out really neatly - it looks like the branch was just moved out underneath him. that background is great!
