Top 25 Wild Bird Photographs of the Week #36

High-quality roof prism binoculars like Swarovski have HD optics and literally bring a small blur in a tree to 3D life. When previously you could see and identify the bird with your binoculars, now you stand their with tired arms in wonder at the spectacle playing out in front of you… Go out right now and see it for yourself!
