I'd have to say Stuck....so simple but such a beautiful image. Almost looks like a little diamond. thanks for the great give away.

I'm going to go with Bird-I love the colors and contrast, plus I could look at it all day and come up with different things the bird might see or say whilst perched.

I love the bluebird one, we're redoing out bedroom and the bluebird would bring out the blue in my quilt...

I love the morning glow...we really need some heat and sunshine, you have a great eye....:)

Anne said...

I have two favorites, I love the Blue Jay, such a beautiful bird, and beautifully captured in your print. I also love the Morning Glow, the colors are warm and remind me of the splendor of nature that surrounds me in the Autumn months. It's very difficult to choose between them, but ultimately, I think I would choose the Blue Jay, because I love how the focus is all about the bird in the picture. Everything else just sort of blends together in the background, but the image of the bird is so crisp and shows just how beautiful this bird really is.

You are a fabulous photographer. I enjoyed seeing your work here. Great Blog!

I love Stuck. It's such a beautiful photograph.

hollyzhobby said...

I love the bluejay because it reminds me of the one spring when we watched a family of new baby bluejays learn how to go from stumbling over blades of grass to taking flight. They were so little, awkward, but beautiful with their brilliant colours.

Karrie said...

I would have to with stuck.
I love how it is a single piece of snow hanging on for dear life. When I looked at it the first time I pictured it being the last piece of snow left before it melted. Love all of your photos!

wildflower00 said...

I love all of those photographs the bird on the antennae is very still and silent yet beautiful but I have to say I think I love the Morning Glow the best. I love sunsets and this one is absolutely spectacular. Thank you for offing it to us

I love "Stuck." I like the light on the piece of ice, and the bare branches. It reminds me of early spring when everything is starting to melt but the new growth isn't apparent yet.

Pegg said...

Bluejay is my favourite. We have them here, but I rarely see them, i just hear them, and see a flash of blue! They are such pretty birds. I tis a gorgeous photo!

Blue & White Wear said...

I love bird! the composition - the lines - the color! All are lovely though! Great work!

Maria said...

I really love the blue jay print!

Handmade by Melissa said...

I love STUCK. It's shows how our winter weather can sometimes be quite beautiful. Great mix of simple lines and colour.

adornyourself said...

The photos are all wonderful and do evoke a lot of memories and feelings for me.

My grandparents and my mom were avid birders.
They would spend hours creating the best blend of seed and treats to attract different birds. My grandmother's favorite bird was the The Blue Jay,
and she seemed to have an affinity for attracting them to her feeders,
she talked "with" them I swear, she would take out special suet treats and several would actually come and sit within inches of her to get the treats and spend time with her.

My vote is for the Blue Jay, you have captured it's essence.

Kathy said...

I love the Blue Jay! We use to see them in our area more years ago, but sadly not so much anymore. I know they have a not so nice reputation, but their colors and just their whole look is so wonderful!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Mary Ann said...

I love all of them, but my favorite is Morning Glow. I can't believe that you took that over your backyard. Wherever you live it must be gorgeous.

Parallax said...

Nice idea, MNH, and beautiful shots. (btw I think bird is my favorite. I love how that piece of equipment -- or whatever it is -- frames the bird, and ads a geometric contrast)

equivoque said...

Blue Jay! I like the subtle winter colors!

Fishstikks said...

I love your photography!

As I live in the desert we don't get very many colorful birds so I have to say that Blue Jay is by far my favorite as he is so colorful!

AmandaSue said...

I'd go with the Blue Jay! I love blue jays there so beautiful and I always have a ton of them in my yard but have never been able to capture a photo of them (they just don't like to stay still haha) Thanks for entering me!

jennifer said...

your photos talk to me, mnh. there is a gentleness about them. i am fond of each one for different reasons, so it is difficult to choose a "favourite." however, Stuck resonates with me at this moment. contrary to its name, Stuck brings out a quiet hopefulness, certain knowledge that it won't be stuck for long. thanks for the opportunity to comment.

sherry said...

I love "STUCK", because I'm often between a rock and hard place myself. and, I'd like to invite you to my blog giveaway as well.

NewYorkMemos said...

My favorite would have to be the Bird Print because I love the warmth I feel from the picture as the sunset hits the bird.

Morning glow, no doubt - it's so positive and uplifting, and that's what I need!

Nothinglikeit said...

Easy one. I love birds and that Bluejay reminds me very much of the bird that hangs out in my back yard.

Carol said...

I love "Bird". I love the angularity of the lines plus the mix of colours. Plus, the bird looks so proud to have found such a wonderful place to sit and watch over the world.

Bovine Bubbles and Hogwash LTD said...

I like the simplicity of stuck

Kim said...

I'm going to go with Bird. The lines in this photo are just incredible...makes you really look at it so you don't miss any little detail. Great work!

libertydoll said...

I love the blue jay picture. I recently became a bird watcher myself. last winter we had a severe ice storms and I kept noticing birds trying to break through the ice getting to food. Well now I buy bird food and leave it out for them year round. Two of my favorite birds that I have seen are the cardinal and the blue jay because of their vivid colors.

Almay Alday said...

I love them all, but my favorite is the Morning Glow because it reminds me that every morning I wake up to be grateful for all I have and to enjoy simple pleasures!

Reeva said...

I like morning glow because it makes me dream about what could be.

My favorite pic is Morning Glow. I like it because someone else got up early to take the picture! I didn't have to get up early and I still get to see the beautiful sky!
