A Touch of Rose

This Rose-breasted Grosbeak rested on a branch in an Allegan County, Michigan forest today as I photographed it under beautiful blue skies. It was great to hear it singing, heralding a new Spring :) Click on any of my images to see an enlarged more detailed version :)

    I love the pairing of the beak with the thorn on the branch. Exquisite photo as well.

    Jeffrery: Great shot. I’ve seen one Red-breasted Grosbreak in Peoria, Illinois. One in 71 years.

    That’s great Carol. I’ve been wanting to get a photo of one of these for quite a while, I’m glad you found one too.

    Oh wow ! This photo is amazingly beautiful ! I love the blurred branches and leaves in the background, it adds a lot and makes the photo so special. The colours are so beautiful. It’s funny in French we don’t call them grosbeak but rose-breasted cardinal :)

      Thank you Jocelyne! That’s so cool to know about the name difference. The background, I agree sets this apart. I was happy it worked out that way. Thanks again! :)
