Photo taken by contributor Captivating Bitter, a woman in her thirties who has struggled with anxiety and depression for most of her life. She has survived emotional abuse, sexual abuse and rape. She has survived suicide attempts and years of self-harm. After wandering her way through life unable to trust and barely feeling alive, she is now fighting to live a healthy life. She has been reading, journaling, blogging and working hard to heal. She is finally taking care of herself and starting to feel better.

About this photo: I caught this chase-scene mid-flight the other day. They are so beautiful! I can’t remember how many times I have watched a bird in flight and wished I could join them. I am often surprised by the fierceness of the Mocking-birds… they are so bold to chase off such large predators. I admire their spirit.

    An amazing shot indeed! Nothing more beautiful than birds in full flight against a blue sky dotted with puffy white clouds. Very very nicely done and thanks for sharing 🙂
