Happy Mockingbird


I had a good time watching this mockingbird in the backyard a few nights ago. He was standing on the roof of the house, doing his little flap-the-wing-to-shadow-the-insects routine. Except there aren’t many insects on the roof! Every once in a while, he hopped into the crape myrtle and grabbed one of the seed pods and ate it. The light wasn’t great, but I had fun photographing him.
