Thats a great picture. SHows why you dont always need things to be front and centre.

Amazing what you can attract with the right bribes, Brian? :-)

Very dramatic composition illustrating that "thirds" thing that I still don't quite get in photos?

Beautiful! I am so enjoying mine. They have the sweetest little song and are so animated at the feeders.
