Looks as though it is tilting to look along a line before building Garrett. Great capture.

Probably listening for insects like Giz said....or maybe worms!

Your backgrounds are always so good Garrett.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

The thrashers in our area are always digging up under the leaves in the back yard. I've never seen this variety. It is an unusual pose!

You did capture a unique pose Garret. He is either listening in or has his eye fixed on that thing he is interested in. Great focus on this bird.

Life's moments are sweet. I just want to capture all that I can of them.

OK, I give up, what is he doing? You sure get fabulous shots and this is a strange pose indeed.

My curiosity is getting the better of me.. how close were you? Lens?

That is some nicely dialed in DOF.

A wonderful image near reduced to that of only form(s) and texture(s).. and the subject is that of a bird. Pretty remarkable.

Thanks, once again, Garrett.

Appreciate you sharing your work behind the lens with us. :o)

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Garrett - Oh the challenges when eyes are on the side of the head! As Les notes, the bird is the focus of the capture, with no background distractions. Kudos! Thad

If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera. ~Lewis Hine The Earth without art is just 'eh'.
