  1. Grackles have a bad rep but I think they are beautiful & fascinating. Good job on these photos!

  2. Awesome pictures you have captured, Elena. I don’t know what kind of bird it is, but it has some beautiful colours which come to full display in these two images. Lovely.

  3. Great capture, Elena! Nice timing on the second one 🙂

  4. Wonderful shots. I love your photo Friday pics. Hope you don’t mind, but I like to use them as warm ups/references for quick sketches.

  5. Such glamorous shots of that fabulous iridescence! One of the many reasons I am such an inveterate fan of black birds of all sorts, captured perfectly. Superb compositions, too—the seemingly simple imagery is full of subtle graces that are harder to achieve than they appear to the inexperienced eye, as you well know! Well done!

  6. Fantastic captures! Beautiful bird

  7. Both beautiful shots. Your palette seems to have escaped into the real world, Elena!

  8. Fantastic catch Elena. Love the iridescent indigo and magenta colors.

  9. Love the opal tones on his feathers. Lovely.

  10. Elena, that’s just gorgeous! Love the colors on this little guy. 🙂

  11. Flaunting it so beautifully! Wonderful shots Elena!

  12. Nice shoot!

  13. Another delightful bird and not one we see this side of the Atlantic – as far as I know.

  14. The grackles are so beautifully colored! I think all the birds are singing a little louder these days, too. Great photographs, Elena.

  15. Beautiful. Yesterday I had an interesting encounter with one tiny belligerent hummer. Turned out I was pruning HER rosebush and buried in the crown was her exquisite tiniest of nests. If I’m brave I’ll try to get a photo. It’s a tree rose, so not quite so easy! 😉 not to mention HER!

  16. I’m not really a bird fan so I know I don’t usually comment on your photos but I love how you captured his eye on the first and perfect timing on getting his spread wings upon take off on the second.

  17. Beautiful pictures Elena!

  18. Wow ! Strangely having a stillness of Chinese panel paintings.
    Pretty impressive.

  19. Very well captured… 🙂

  20. Love the in flight! Beautiful coloring!

  21. No bird can stare you down quite like a grackle can stare you down.

  22. Wonderfully quiet tones. The birds are giving us huge amusement this winter

    • We’re loving them too. All different from one another yet they all eat together at our feeder, with minor squabbles occasionally, of course.

  23. This photo is beautiful art, thank you Elena.

  24. The feathers on this bird are so beautiful. Really wonderful shot.

  26. Love crows, ravens, blackbirds! These images show that they are really more colorful than one would think.

  27. Beautiful birdy! Happy weekend, Elena! 🙂
