A Song in the Air

Then from the neighboring thicket the mockingbird, wildest of singers, Swinging aloft on a willow spray that hung o'er the water. Shook from his little throat such floods of delirious music, That the whole air and the woods and the waves seemed silent to listen.  
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What a catch: a bird in focus framed by berries and branches.
May sound easy, but it ain't.
Well done you.

This photo is just beautiful! I clicked the link to hear the song it was singing. I thought I would here "My Bonnie flies over the ocean...." ^_^ But it was a series of delightful little ditties that I really enjoyed! Thanks for the link!

I like mocking birds. MANY years ago my dad pointed out and showed me the first one I saw.
Interesting to hear all the sounds they make. Thanks for the link.

I love it when a mockingbird visits our yard but it's not often enough. The photo is great---would make a great greeting card.

Hi Kerri, Thanks for coming to my blog. I hope you will return often. I am enjoying yours. You take marvelous photos.

Love your mockingbird... Mockingbirds are the STATE BIRDS of TENNESSEE---yet I never have seen one in my yard... I'm sure they are around --but obviously not around mine.... Crazy, huh?????

Thanks again.
Hugs,
Betsy
