Mockingbird on a foggy morning

with 26 comments

Because February 27th came up foggy, I set out for the Riata Trace Pond, where my hopes of getting some good fog pictures were realized. At one point while walking the path around the pond I spotted this bird, which Shannon Westveer has confirmed was a northern mockingbird, Mimus polyglottos. Normally I’d have slowly moved closer, but a guy walking a dog was coming up behind me so I had to grab a few quick shots from where I was before the bird retreated into the bushes, which it soon did. In the end this framing pleased me with the extra details the branches afforded and the subject’s somewhat off-center placement.
