Your image, and the creativity you captured there, was the inspiration. I just followed along.

So simple, yet so perfect!! #1 below is just the bird's head flipped (maybe slightly different crop too), #2 is a whole different bird (maybe too large and maybe too "ready for flight"?) and #3 is the original, which was under-exposed at 3200 ISO and hand-held, shot from the car - conditions which rarely stop me from trying since I learned the joys of playful pp (artistic expression) :)

Thank you again!

I love all three but thought I'd see what I might have ended up with on the original and found I would only have made minor adjustments.

What impresses me most is seeing how you pushed past the realistic feel and went full artistic. I love it, absolutely love it! S-

Thank you very much, Steve! One of those cool surprises that keep me excited about driving around the countryside looking for right time/right place quirky or beautiful :)
