  1. OMGos. This is truly an incredible shot. And that is an amazing bird I've never seen before (IRL, at least).

  2. gorgeous art/photography, and my what a beautiful bird. Happy PPF!

  3. Nice contrast of tones Monica. Happy PPF


  4. gosh what a beautiful photograph. I'm betting you'll get some takers who want to paint that beautiful bird. I love how you're weaving a story into your art. You should write children's books, your art would spotlight your words so beautifully. Visiting From PPF. Oh, my new blog is now live on my new wordpress site (justaddwatersilly.com) and I'm doing a giveaway tomorrow (Sunday). The giveaway will include a DIY Altoids tin with magnetic half pans, pencil & eraser, Hahnemuhle Grey Book toned paper sketchbook, Micron sigma pens, a Grumbacher watercolor brush and a bee magnet! Hope to see you there!

  5. Absolutely beautiful picture. Blessings, Janet

  6. Love the color combo on this pic/art

  7. Hello, pretty shot of your Bullfinch. I wish they were seen here. Enjoy your day and week!

  8. Wow, what a beauty ... and what a great shot. This was taken where? Here the birds leave for the winter ... there they come for the winter? I am still waiting for the return of the eagles ... they will arrive as soon as the waterways up north of us freeze over which shouldn't be too long from now. Our temps are averaging in the low 30's, but no snow yet. How about you? Love this picture, Monica ...

    1. our winterbirds don´t go far. They breed in the forests so you rarely see them. They comes out of there in late fall.

  9. Great photo of a very beautiful and colorful little bird.
