Earlier this year in Mexico, I was sitting on my patio-early morning. These song birds were so pretty to listen to as I was waking up to a new day.
I ran this image thru a straightener- thus lost all my jpeg data. Here is what it was:
Have a great day !

A terrific way to start ones morning Julie,being serenaded by these songbirds.A well balanced composition, with the smaller bird, balancing both the larger bird & the large metal fence.I like the natural colours & feather texture captured here.I know
you may be on vacation,but someone needs to do a little touching up to the metal fence:-)

It looks like some kind of wren, they do have beautiful songs. Nice positioning in the frame and the background has good blurring for separation.

Hello Julie, two songbirds sitting on a rusty piece of ironwork; a super composition with a lovely contrasting bokeh.
Very good sharp focus and enhanced by the morning light.
One to be proud of.
Tfs, regards Jean.
