This picture almost look three dimensional. It is a little stark, but that is nature.
I like the colors but the image seems rather stiff and static to me.
What a treat it was to scroll through your more recent photographic artwork! I love viewing your photographic interpretation of the world around us. And . . . what wonderful, candid shots of birds doing what birds to. Wonderful, imaginative work!
