Carolina Wren

Hmmm. today I decided I had to do a picture of a bird, but trying to look through all my bird photos could take me days! They are scattered all through thousands of pictures in hundreds of albums. Some day I need to organize them. It would be great to be able to tag them with multiple tags as I can with emails sent to gmail. Something to look into ...

But I do love this little Carolina Wren who showed up a few weeks running early in the mild winter. I have not seen him in the last few weeks since it turned bitter cold, and hope he has just winged southward to warmer climes.

Gee, I was perfectly happy with this background when I saw it on my easel, but looking at it here online I'm itching to make some changes to it. We shall see.

Debbie that picture is just awesome! You made the comment about the background, well, I am no artie smartie but I like it, it lets you focus your attention on the Carolina Wren! By the way he didn't fly South, he came here to Northern IN and is feeding at our suet feeder in our front window. We have taken lots of pictures of him and a downy woodpecker who is taking turns eating the suet. Thanks for sharing that painting, you are a talented person!

this a really beautiful one, debbie! the background is good in how it moves back and is in a different focus - it somehow helps the little wren look as miniature and compact as little birds do look, without being static. I think it's great. Thanks for sharing!!
