|Female Red Wing Blackbirds are much more colorful than people normally think as shown here. This shot shows her varied color blended in with the late fall wetland forest background. I do birds quite a bit and out of the best bird shots from November this one was my favorite, I think it is the bokeh. There are more exotic birds but hope this one connects with people because of its familiarity.
