Bird and stick


I know I’m not really breaking any photographic ground here or anything. But a wet, dead bird with a few sticks and leaves around it was just too much to resist.

  1. During the drought, the Golden Eagles left the feathered remains of herons and hawks, heads and wings I didn’t the guts to share, especially those of the Great Egrets scattered like white pillow down on the bare ground. Congratulations!

  2. Every stunning photo does not have to push the boundaries.

  3. There goes lunch ! Two meanings to that now that I think about it.


  4. I feel you have a lot of interesting things happening in this composition. There are many perceived levels of contrast. The dark asphalt and light bird remains could symbolize opposite pairings such as: natural vs man made textures, life succumbed to death, impact of man on nature. The light halo around the bird seems like a transitional space. So, how’s that for going deep. Cheers!
