Hello, Blackbirds!

 
Today, for the first time this year, the blackbirds were in the nearby tree. It looked like they had spent the night.

I'm hooking up with The Weekend in Black and White. Click here to check out B&W photos by bloggers from around the world.

My photo turned out so stark that I played around with the artistic filters in Photoshop. I like these looks the best.  What do you think?

  3. Looks like the two top blackbirds are expecting the lower bird to say something. Interesting.

  5. The starkness of winter is beautifully captured - especially in the first and second photos.

    1. I thought so, too. There's so much I haven't explored yet of Photoshop.

  9. Reminds me of that Paul McCartney song that starts something like, ... 'blackbird singin' in the dead of night ...'
