A Thing of Beauty

This is one of Charlie Corbeil's "glamour shots." You might think this beauty is some rare, exotic species. Indeed, it is an adult male boat-tailed grackle, common, noisy - often seen on telephone wires or having lunch in the Publix parking lot. But in the right light, the grackle's iridescent black plumage takes on the jewel-like tones that Charlie captured here. We could wax philosophical about finding beauty in the mundane, but let's just enjoy the picture instead! Thanks, Charlie. (Charlie Corbeil Photography)

Top-drawer. Hard shot to get.
