Well done! Brian you have done it again with your superb photography skills.

Nancy J said...

Wow, I'm lost for words, these are the most stunning, startling photos ever. Super feather and colour detail, and of course the expression. Cheers,Jean

Adrienne said...

Wow is right! Love these - for many reasons...but I think the feather detail is fabulous...all the different kinds of layered fethers on one bird! Amazing! Such great shots - you really do great work!

Roan said...

Another bird I'm not so fond of, but they are beautiful in the right light and you have captured this one in your usual amazing way.

These are really great close up photos of the grackle. They are noisy and annoying but they also have such beautiful iridescence in their feathers. There's nest in the juniper tree next to the house and they are quite annoying first thing in the morning. :)

Very nice photos of the Grackle, Brian. We have them here too, and are my nemesis! They just take over everything, and we can't get rid of them.
