When I first saw this image, a stupid story popped into my head based on the instant of capture where I felt that the birds were actually communicating with one another.

The image sparkled my imagination and my crazy little story called 'Searching for Love' goes like this.

"Saw your branch free, so I thought I'd drop by. Hope you don't mind, but I'm searching for a mate. I haven't had too much success, lately. I was attracted to that beautiful fur coat that you're wearing, it really goes well with your feathers. I don't want to sound pushy or anything but would you care to accompany me on a fly-by, tonight?"

You may not like the story, but I certainly like the image. Well composed with the perfect Depth of Field. Maybe some of the out of focus background called have been cleaned up a little in post processing.

Lovely shot, I love the expression on the fur coat bird. Good luck in the challenge.

Great depth of field.
