actually those bright skies work so well for your shots like this Brian; is it to do with the snowy sky perhaps I'm thinking. The dove is just beautiful; looking almost like a cut-out sitting there on a white backdrop

The ice looks almost as sharp as the thorns. Great capture, Brian!

That's a prickly position to be in. It's a beautiful shot.

Outstanding. Catching that thorny branch with the pointed icicles - so great!

So pretty and wintery looking. Those birds look so gentle.
