Comment'The Fledgling': during an evening walk I came across a large group of white-winged choughs scratching about in the leaf litter under an old yellow box, searching for bugs. At the base of the tree, despite all this activity, a fledgling sat very still beside a wedge of sharp granite. I almost didn't notice him, which I guess was the aim. I chose this image because of the clarity, the texture visible in the black feathering, the contrast between the soft bird and the hard rock, and of course those eyebrows - not sure if they're clownish or ghoulish!
