Congratulations Hilary for your wonderful image which is the OOTB IOTW for the week ending Aug. 5th, 2011!!

A very common bird across sub-Saharan Africa, but a favourite none the less. Being a simple composition, I have tried to add interest by using the textures (3 layers at varying blends) to give depth. I wanted to keep the old gnarled whistling thorn bush stem which I liked for its complex nature and detail. It was going to be part of an avian triptych but I liked it so much I decided to let it stand alone.
