Hello Bill,
I have looked through your gallery and your standard of photography is remarkable. This image is unusual and very beautiful with it forming a cross on the diagonal twig. I also like the lovely colours of the background and the suggestion of ripples on water. Very pleasant to view. Best wishes.
