Color Your World

Grackles have some AMAZING colors in their feathers. I had never been able to capture their iridescence until now.
Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.

Just seconds before I saw your post my husband called me to the window to see the first Grackle of spring in our yard! Now we're waiting for the Red-winged blackbirds!

You captured him perfectly! They are such beauties!

This is a great shot of the pesky grackle. You know, until I saw the colors by taking photos, I did not appreciate them at all. Now I think they're awesome.

Love the colors of this bird! absolutely beautiful!!

I posted a Grackle to flickr last week. Unfortunately I didn't capture the colors as wonderfully as you did here. This is AWESOME!

mindymilburn said...

Simply beautiful. The colors oh his back are so wonderful and you captured them beautifully!

Rusty said...

An excellent capture! Having that 'glow' in a photograph is certainly not easy. I noticed one showed up at the feeder yesterday. Spring weather may be slow, but it's coming - I hope. ATB!

Hilary said...

Beautiful Grack! Aren't they just gorgeous when the sun hits them just so? So glad you captured that.

Thanks,

That's a cool quote by Allen Klein. And a most excellent capture on the grackle colors!!

Yes! You got the whole bird. I have a bunch of this type of photo, as well. I love the motion.

Carletta said...

Oh my gosh this is beautiful!
I've always loved their feathers glistening in the sunlight.
Awesome work Kerri!

shabby girl said...

Oh my Lord! We have been trying to record the grackles here in TX, because they sound like they've been listening to some kind of radio frequency. Bizarre!
Great shot!

lisaschaos said...

Della said...

That is one of the most beautiful birds I've ever seen! I've never heard of Grackles either. Thanks for sharing, and great photo Kerri!

Very nice detail in thios shot. Many people call them mistakingly blackbirds, but look at the colors.

I've seen those colors in the wild, but in my photos the birds always look solid black. Great job capturing the iridescence.

Kelly said...
