City Daily Photo Theme Day: best of the year
It was very hard for me to choose a "best of the year" photo from my blog, but here is one of my favorites. This mockingbird was posing for me just outside of the Florida Capitol building in downtown Tallahassee. The mockingbird is Florida's state bird. I have plenty of them hanging around my yard and they often wake me up in the morning with their beautiful songs. The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo Community. To see other CDP members' interpretations of this month's theme, visit our gallery here.

Aw, looks like he just got done serenading you. What a cutie! That's a great close-up to really be able to see what he looks like.
Happy New Year!
I don't think I've ever seen a photo of a mockingbird. I also know how hard it is to take photographs of birds - they move so quickly. I love this one! Happy New Year from the Loire Valley in France.
I do remember this shot, and I wondered what charm offensive you put on to get this guy so interested in what you were doing and saying.
I wish for you you a new year filled with wondrous things and lots of happiness, peace, and love!
It is a beautiful bird. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
Lovely. He has his eye on you!
Lovely picture and a Happy New Year.
It is so hard to find a just perfect photo. You did a good job. I like the Mockingbird.
Happiness in the new year to you and your family
I love to hear the mockingbird sing!
Such a cute bird!
Love your choice. It's a great picture! Best wishes for 2016 from Valladolid.
Hello, the Mocker is posing nicely for you. Great shot!

Great shot, Lois! We have them here now and I love to hear them singing away with their whole variety of songs.
Lovely bird! I put one up at my place, too.
