Gaithersburg, MD

This is a small (~6" wingspan) carved bird that's part of a mobile belonging to a friend. I thought it would make an interesting photo. Makes me want to take up wood carving -- although, I'm accident-prone.

PS - Isolated bird from background, which was removed. Various tools to remove thread gy which the bird was suspended. Dark blue background layer with a black to transparent gradient adjustment layer.

Nikon D70 ,Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom

I thought with all your amazing SPOON carving, that you had made this! Nice to make it look like it is in flight!

I wish I could claim that I had. It is part of a "mult-bird" mobile belonging to a friend I was visiting. It was hanging below a dining room light, and I took a quick shot. I removed everything except this one bird and added a background.
