I feel sorry for the birds in your neighborhood. Birds like to be scratched, but not hugged. :P

Happy New Years! :iconspazhugplz:

This is amazing you caputred so much detail on the bird. The best part I think about this photo it that you managed to capture the snow on the bird, and I love the one piece of snow in the center of the photo and how perfect it looks. This is a true masterpeice. :D
