Interesting compo on this shot Yves. You get a real sense of the challenges the young birds face from this image and he shows so well against the beautiful background sky. A lovely capture.

Thanks Heather. A shot against a blue sky is always a winner.

Thanks for the comment Clifford

Debra Plett

It looks like he is just learning to fly and a little uneasy yet. The young ones always look fluffy and awkward. Sure stands out nicely against the vivid blue sky.

Thank you so much Debra. I love shooting them for theyr unexperience acting and curiosity light in the eye.

I would guess this one is a young grackle (or a crow)
