Nothing like a narcissistic bird! But I can see why he/she is entranced, it’s a terrific reflection and you’re the one to thank! Marvelous capture, Paul! Hope you have a great weekend!
Tel Narcisse 🙂 – Joli cliché.
Je ne connais pas cet oiseau.

Hahaha! Yes, I’m sure it’s in love with its “beautiful/handsome” reflection. 🙂

There is an element of Narcissus in us all, Paul. The clarity here is to die for. I also like the generous space you have given your subject.
