This is one from the archives, but seemed to go with yesterday's!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

I like your title. Must have been preening himself/herself. Great close up Judy.

@tyan: Ohhhhhhhhh, the old crows, eh? They won't stand still for me to get their photos around here, but they bully the smaller birds away from the birdbath and sometimes drop big pieces of dry bread in the water to soften it. When that happens I bang on the window and they leave (for a while) and then return. ;(

Now the Great Blue Herons are beautiful and I love to capture their portraits when possible!

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

Yes, wonderful detail, Judy, especially on the touch of feather on the beak. He looks like a very alert bird.

@Michael Skorulski: Oh, yes, they don't miss a thing, but extremely slow steps with face hidden behind the camera seems to work for me. Thank you, Michael.

Fliss from Melbourne Beach, United States

willow from Chelsea, United States

Wow! How did you get so close? This is a great shot of what is usually a rather timid bird. Well done.

@willow: Hi Willow ... if you read several of my responses, you'll see my 'tactic' of 'hiding' behind my camera and not making eye contact. ... Thank you!
