He's beautiful! I keep seeing grackles in the parking lot where I shop for groceries, but have yet to get a photo. They really are pretty birds! I meant to tell you before that I have no idea what kind of turtles my grandson was photographed with. Neither he nor my husband were that forthcoming about what they saw that day! :-)
Wonderful shot of the grackle, such lovely iridescent green feathers. Your caption is so funny. I notice I tend to see some recognizable emotion in birds' expressions, but perhaps it is in the eye of the beholder.
