In The Pines

Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang
there except those that sang best.

Hi!
He/she is beautiful!! We have those birds here, but they don't socialize too much. I see them flitting around in the trees but not close enough to get a photo. Have a great day!!

I think cropping is OK but this is fantastic the way it is

the bit of red pops out and I love how he's framed by all the branches

Hi Kerri,
I love your little woodpecker. Great capture, and wonderful for SOOC. Thanks for joining in. Cropping is the only thing that is OK; I love to edit, so this is always a challenge for me.

Another lovely bird shot - well done. And another superb quote - it's like you find quotes especially to inspire me!! Thank you!!!!

RuneE said...

Well done as such, but I agree with when it comes to cropping.

SOOC is not for me. I compose my picture, I shoot RAW (which demands editing) and I crop if I deem it necessary. I you shoot JPG you leave the editing (bar the cropping) to the engineers.

I want to present my pictures as I saw it and felt it. I have done my share of documentary photography.

Gorgeous shot, Kerri! Your header shot is wonderful too! Happy SOOC! :)

Linda said...

Nice even without cropping. You certainly do have a nice variety of birds in your area. Most of what I see are Hawks and Turkey Buzzards, which is probably why I don't see other birds.

Mary said...

Very pretty, Kerri. I enjoy birds more in the winter months. They're plentiful and easily found in the woods :o)

Mary said...

Looks wonderful to me and no cropping needed. The pine adds a nice bit of color!

LOVE your downy. Your deck sounds like a wonderful place to take your camera!

Yolanda said...

He is so pretty. I miss seeing them as often out here.

Carletta said...

I looked at this and thought SOOC -does she ever take a bad photo. Then I read your quote. It made me feel much better. I think I'll copy it and paste it to my camera. :)

Stay warm.

Such beautiful and gentle creatures...wonderfully captured! Stumbled upon one of your earlier posts about 'bark'! So glad that I discovered it! Nature offers such amazing beauty...thanks for sharing a piece of yourself...a piece of your world as seen through your eyes.

Blessings,
Kimberly

Lovely little Downy. They are such sweet birds.

PERBS said...

I agree -- no cropping necessary! That bird is hiding so well and you captured it anyway. It was good to see all the surrounding limbs in which it thought it was hiding safely. Ü

What a pretty photo! I think SOOC sounds like a wonderful challenge - definitely something I might have to look into doing when I start my photo blog.
