Winter Blackbirds

"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Toronto, Canada

The blackbirds seem to weave magic in this fascinating landscape, a natural winner !~

The Blackbirds are a beautiful way to decorate the landscape - and bring a sense of life to this winter scene.

They are probably starlings?
This is winter, this is what I like about how the weather completely changes the landscape and washes away the colour to often leave grey and white monotones. I so miss this, we haven't had good snow here for about three years.
Happy New Year!

On dirait que ces oiseaux cherchent à habiller les arbres! Une façon de cultiver le mimétisme afin de passer inaperçus mais comme ils ne tiennent pas longtemps en place...
Bonne année lumineuse, joyeuse et chal-heureuse!
