This Rusty Blackbird blended into the background but as he twisted around poking in the stream his understated color scheme showed off a bit. A nearby maple tree had dropped a few turned leaves for a hint of color in the scene.

A lovely moment when it sees itself in the mirror, beautifully matched colours. Gets even better when you zoom into square format with all the varying reflections of the water.
Thanks, Hans, glad that you liked this fellow. I’ve often wondered if birds and animals see themselves in the mirrored water as we do.
Sure they do (or maybe birdsnacks….)
His coloring is just perfect.
