May 2011 — Shades of Green

There was a huge number of entries for Shades of Green with a wide variety of subjects.

While the main subject is a gray catbird, the tree that it is in and the blurry background have multiple shades of green which help the bird to stand out. I also like how the branches are a similar gray, and the bird’s body is at the same upward angle as the branch it is perched on.

This female yellow-throated vireo has an olive back and is perched amid greenery. I wish the leaves in the foreground were smaller, but, when you’re birding, you take what you can get.

This store window in Ellicott City caught my eye with its display of green objects.
