He looks a little somber here I agree and he really stands out perched on the pussy willow branch. A beautiful image in every detail, Yves.

Thanks Heather. A very special image indeed.

Debra Plett

I agree Yves, the soft pastel background is very striking. Was there a bit of morning dew or fog that created the mood. He does look deep in thought. Wonderful capture.

Yves Langlois

Thanks for the appreciated comments Debra. Glad you like it too.

I love it! As you say, moody, but sure makes the bird the star. You got the catch light in the eye again, too.

Yves Langlois

The bird look kind of human, lost in its thoughts. The mood might also be du to the slightly overexposure (kind of a white curtains in front). Love the backdrop colour too.

This red-winged blackbird portrait has some kind of special mood to it.
