Mockingbird Baby

Spotted this Mockingbird baby hiding in my cypress tree. Tried getting his face but he was frozen. Never moved for about five minutes! Good survival instinct.

    Lovely contrast in color of the baby mocking bird and the cypress needles.

    Nice details! You know that when something blocks the birds view of you and they can not see you they think you can't see them either. You are right about instincts, and what lovely songs they sing!

      That is right, and he was frozen.

    There is a good instinct to protect yourself.
