    Weird. I was just showing my students the difference between razor wire and barbed wire in class today ( learning about trench warfare WW1) I could have used this as an illustration!

    This is very eloquent and beautiful. In spite of the sharp fences, a small but beautiful little bird is content to sit there. Excellent capture.

    Amazing. Especially so since when do hummingbirds sit still for pictures?

  • Kel Casey

    Kel Casey said (29 Mar 2009):

    I keep going back to this picture. Of the thousands here on JPG, it's my favorite so far. You really captured it--the small beauty of the hummer, his unconcerned "attitude" about his choice of perches, the stark danger of the wire. Love it.
