Last summer, while painting and selling on Main Street in Guerneville, California, A number of blackbirds would come checking for food. I would always share my trail mix with them. This particular Blackbird would often come by himself. I made contact with him thru the lens on such an occasion. You can see the fungus on his foot in the sun. His foot in the shade is much more affected. Despite all of that you can see he is a proud bird. I used this photo as model for one of my paintings.
