They do blend well. I saw three. Do you know what type of bird they are?
Lovely picture. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful shot Carver.

Louise said...

I don't think I would have noticed the birds had you not pointed out that they were there. Beautiful shot. Love the lighting.

Leora said...

I am so jealous of bird photographers. I gave up. Love your tree, birds and sky.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. To answer about whether I know what kind of birds they were in my shot: I think they were a mix of cardinals, robins, and brown thrashers. They were so high and my zoom isn't powerful enough for me to be sure but I think these were good sized birds. The nuthatches and chickadees need to be closer for me to get shots, although they were also zipping around when I was shooting.

Mojo said...

Four?

And a lot of stuff (fruit? nuts?) trying to look like birds!

Cool shot... looks vaguely familiar somehow.

Beautiful capture Carver! I like the tree and the birds!

babooshka said...

That is so cute. How many birds.

Jeanne said...

Wow great! I pick up three, maybe two more. How many really?

Carver said...

Thanks again to everyone for visiting. I think it's 4 birds with maybe a 5th. They flew in and out so fast that I couldn't keep track of how many I was photographing. I'm sure about 4 though.

Carver: I can certainly see several birds hiding in the trees. That is a neat sky shot.

Indrani said...

I could spot three, how well they are camouflaged there.

napaboaniya said...

Spotted, the birds do blend themselves pretty well into it :)
Happy Weekend Carver!!

Carletta said...

Oh, I see those little guys pretending to be plump leaves! Nice one.

Catherine said...

Like you present it as a game.
What a wonderful example of mimicry in some way.
Without birds song I would have missed them.

SandyCarlson said...

Have a nice weekend!

Dewdrop said...

Sneaky birds... Great shot!

Bradley Myers said...

Cool sky watch, I do see the birds.

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper said...

Great shot, Carver! The birds are very well camouflaged, but not unfindable. Reminds me of 'where's Waldo?'

Nice Sky Watch!

Mckay K said...

Beautiful. The birds are doing an excellent job of blending in.

Daryl said...

Exquisite ... such color!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Cindy said...

I think I see a couple of them. Some that I thought were turned out to be, on closer inspection, leaves. I think I need a new lens prescription!
My skywatch post is here Hope you can stop by!

Sandi McBride said...

Yes, I see them. They are beautiful. You are talented.
Sandi
