Such a sweet little guy! Excellent capture, and I am so impressed with the quality of your photos--so sharp and clear. Love the treatment on your crocus picture too--isn't it amazing what we can do with our pics on the computer these days! Have a good week. Mickie :)

Ooooh, I love how he looks straight into the lens, almost as if he was posing for you! Well done!

What a cheeky little fellow, Carletta. I'm sure he's posing for the camera...

Il pose, il regarde la caméra ! Bravo !

This is a marvelous photo. The snowflakes are a wonderful touch, but the clarity and detail of the bird is fantastic.

Great shot of the beautiful bird!

Dianne said...

I love seeing all the detail
his little feet hanging on are so dear

the glass sculptures will be fiberglass which I believe is more resilient and they'll be within areas that are protected from accidents or vandals

such a cutie

Marie said...

When I see something this sweet, it makes me really happy. God created the birds I think, just to give us joy! He looks so comfortable in the snow because of his fluffed up feathers! A wonderful photo!

I love the Dark Eyed Junco too, and soon they shall leave my presence as well and head to far off places like where I saw them last September all the way out in Wyoming...far, far from Kentucky~
Beautiful photograph!

Wonderful capture Carletta. It is a picture that speaks of winter. How these little bundles survive the season is beyond me!

Juncos are such sweet birds. They are one reason I like winter. :)

LadyFi said...

Utterly magical!

Rose said...

Carletta, this is wonderful!

SquirrelQueen said...

He is a beautiful little thing with those feathers all fluffed up to ward off the cold. I think he might be wishing he was down in the next photo with the crocus in the sun.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Cute, fluffy and delightful! You have caught wonderful definition in the feathers here too.

Valerie said...

Beautiful captures, all Carletta. You have a talented eye for subjects, timing and composition. Thanks for sharing.
