I usually find haze an obstacle when taking photos, but this one actually works well. - Attack of the Grackle Cloud by AlphaTangoBravo / Adam Baker, via Flickr Adam Baker, Pink Sky, Bats, Art Photography, Colors, Birds Paintings, Attack, Houston Texas, Grackl Cloud

When I was little and would visit my Grandparent's house in Iowa I would climb up the big tree (not sure what type of tree it even was) and read. The branches were huge and sturdy and perfectly placed so that it was easy to climb. My favorite branch had an adjoining limb that would hold my stack of books like a table. This pic reminds me of that. Wish I'd thought of the origami cranes - how beautiful that is!
Spectacular technical skill displayed here. Great bokeh and rich colors. too many would make the mistake of photographing from the light side when exposing for the shadows gives the wings such beautiful highlights. Beautiful birds on the wing feasting on red berries!
