Northern Mockingbird – Even though the sun was bright, it was a windy and chilly afternoon in Kyle, Texas when I watched this Northern Mockingbird flying around near the retention ponds in our neighborhood. It finally landed and gave me a few minutes to get a few good images. I don’t always find the Northern Mockingbird to be that attractive a photographic model. However, I was sort of intrigued by the way this bird sort of melted onto the branch where it had perched. Quite relaxed I would say.
