Long Billed Thrasher.South Texas July. He looks how I felt. Or maybe he was just a little weary of bird on a stick photographs and wanted to mix it up a little.

Glad you mixed it up a bit Todd. Tough light. Looks hot there. Good to see something that breaks the mould of the birds on the stick images. Thanks for sharing.
Make your life spectacular!

He really does look hot, the pose tells the story.

Not only hot but looks to be moulting too? I can relate to that feeling of the heat! Fun shot!

Great illustration of how a bird can suffer with the heat-I like the change in scenery too.

Certainly looks hot and panting in the heat. Poor thing.

That looks like the poster child for global warming. Really a unique image presented very well.

I like the wild eyed expression on the face. Great to catch this with the open beak. The setting is quite nice.
