Freezing rain on a late December day does not discourage this House Finch from perching in the thorny bramble to munch on a berry or two.

Great photo (again), Theresa. Totally love how the freezing rain drops surround that House Finch like natural diamonds. So pretty. Thank you.

The color coordination in this photo is amazing, don’t you think? Without the finch it would just be a tangle of brambles – sort of interesting. But add that finch and voila – most interesting! The green branches highlight greys/reds/browns, also making this scene special.

As you can see, Theresa, I like your photo!!
