This image proved interesting once I’d downloaded it.
I hadn’t noticed the almost mirrored compositional structure of the birds legs and the budding twigs when I was taking the photograph at the time. Sometimes it’s all about luck and this was just such a case. I think it works beautifully and really like the play between the two areas, with the twigs echoing the feet but on a larger scale. It also dictates the framing of the image and if the twigs had not produced this mirrored effect I would have placed the Pipit more towards the left of the image, giving it more space to ‘move’ into the frame.
