Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

I shot this outside in the afternoon and the grosbeak was above my head on one of the branches of the crab apple tree. I was surprised to get that close to him as he is a migratory bird and had only been here a few days. We are getting a few blossoms on the tree now...It was like a summer day with temperature at 80 degrees. Shortly before I shot this picture I heard a crash north of our house and saw a big tree fall down on the edge of our woods..I had just been over in that same area in the morning shooting pictures of wildflowers.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Wow! A superb pose and capture! He's such a handsome bird and you captured his markings so beautifully! Glad you weren't near the tree when it fell, they fall so fast without any warning.
