These birds like to land in dead  trees while hawking for insects above the water of the pond.
Ever so rarely one would land on this dead shrub low, giving me this background of the far shore.
Thanks for looking.

Karl, love the alert, puffy, crest up pose and lovely BG - everything ties in so nicely together, including the yellow lichen matching the tail tips - beautiful!
