Red Robin in Central Park, by Des Brownlie

A grey winter’s day in early January walking through Central Park. All the trees have lost their leaves the sky is overcast with pending snow on its way. It is just a typical cold day with no color and what do I see. I saw this Red bird flying about in the sky. I followed its progress until it landed on a branch in a tree. It was just sitting there so bright and being a beacon in the dreary winter’s day. I took the photo of it sitting adding brightness to a dull day.
