What a nice bird! I am really speechless. Camera work just amazing. I enjoy it.

Many types of little birds looking nice Cool thanks for sharing Mike sir 🙂

Mindblowing shots. just amazing.

Sir @etcmike multiple account holders are trying to steal rewards from your post. Four account from one person.

Thank you! After reading your comments I have reduced my voting power on those comments.
I am not wise enough to know absolutely a person is using multiple accounts. This is why I reduced my voting power percentage as a compromise.

Thank you for your dilligence in protecting the integrity of the SteemIt community.

Have a great week!
Steem on!
Mike
