Common

This is the common mockingbird peaking at me from some palm berries on a (what now seems so very long-ago) beach in Jamaica.  He looks more exotic in this environment, doesn't he...perhaps we all do...did?  Why is that?  Why does where we are become more intriguing than who we are?  Or does it?

Lovely pic.

We feel more exotic/sharp/colourful in new clothes too. Same reasoning, perhaps?

What a delicious picture!

I'll have to go to Jamaica myself and explore this theory. I suspect I would be more exotic sitting on the beach with a drink in my hand.

That is one fabulous picture. We can only be where we get ourselves, so I guess it says as much about ourselves as anything else!

I know I feel much more comfortable in a beautiful setting. Makes me feel beautiful.

Perhaps it is not we who change but the viewer who's influenced by a different (exotic?) environment...

That is just beautiful. Nothing more to be said, but intoxicating.

Great shot! though I guess many of us normally drab folk would look good in paradise. :) There is a pair of mockingbirds here. They come close and sing to me when I'm out in the yard. They are wonderful company.
