Sometimes photographs enter Flickr Explorer days after they were oringnally uploaded - in this case, my twelfth shot to make it, it took about 2 weeks. I caught this jackdaw resting inside an electricity pilon - a beautiful contrast between the free flowing forms of nature and the rigid manmade geometry. Postprocessing was pretty severe here, going for high contrast and black and white to emphasize the line play.
