Very nice Gene! I love the 2 toned BG and the soft transition between the brown and green.
Perfect HA and the berry could not be better positioned.Nice diagonal line created by the perch.
Just the right amount of berries and shrubbery so as to not overwhelm the thrasher.
Tack sharp and exposure spot on.
