Brave Wren.


















I always thought that the Wren was a brave bird. It is always checking out what we are doing in the garden and talking to us. Or that's what we imagine it's doing. Although, it's probably saying, "Clear off out of MY GARDEN!"

This is lovely! I like the "wet" background, contrasting with the sharpness of the bird. Payne's gray?

This is amazing - the bird and branch in the foreground are very realistic - I thought it was a photograph at first. Fantastic work!

Hello Alan, what a clever looking Wren this is! I love the blurry background and the crisp atmosphere you've created. (^_^)
