This is one of my earliest attempts at bird photography, taken in Baja California Sur, Mexico when we lived there. This is a Gray Thrasher, an endemic bird in Baja Sur. This was taken in a stark desert environment. When an isolated plant had berries, it truly was a “bird magnet” attracting birds of all species from far and wide. As I have taken many images since then (estimated 1 million), I am not sure this image would have even made it through my initial cull, but now that I look at it again (and reprocessed it) I kinda like it.
