Great one Debra. Nice that you caught him with one leg up. Soaking wet but very concentrate in the worm chasing action.Appreciate the horizontal split green tones (pale with the grass and dark with the water.

Thanks for the generous comments Yves. I am hoping they show up again.

Heather Mellon

I love this.. he looks soaking wet but unstoppable! And I love how you captured the excitement of the moment in such beautiful tones and detail. Perfect timing on this awesome shot Debra.

Debra Plett

Thank you very much Heather. I sure was glad that I had noticed them amongst the other blackbirds. Nice to see something different than the normal in your own backyard.

Clifford Dupuis

wow, this is an amazing shot Debra. The color and the drama in this image are priceless. Well done

Debra Plett

Thanks for your comments Clifford. I was excited to see the rain had brought some different birds into the neighborhood.

After a very fierce thunderstorm with hail and torrential rain the Blackbirds where in their glory catching worms. I was very happy to see that a couple of Yellow-headed Blackbirds had joined in on the feast.
