Any better O? I'll take Cats version,its much more interesting....these birds can be so skittish I parked early and hid on my belly under the car so it wouldnt see me. She is a creature of habit and has been returning every morning to this spot by my home.(I always carry my third eye O, it helps me to see things and reminds me to slow down in order to do it). You should see my shots from the dentist office~lol
I prefer this one alot more over the POTW one due to the whites not being blown out on the shoulder.
This to me is by far much more elegant & looks much more natural... just a personal taste ...
This is a "Beautiful" capture Maggi
beautiful... I luv how having your camera is important to you... I try to have one on hand too, and so obviously feel a bit of kindred-ness to someone who takes the day in the same 'eye'. This is really beautiful M. I might try and sharpen the eye just ever so slightly, but this is one heck of a photo"The poetry of photography will always be more important than the mechanics of the camera..." - J-H. Lartigue
Lovely comments, Oly, and what a capture, Maggi. The dappled spring colours of the b/g are beautiful, as is the subject. Would love to hear the story, but I bet it's something on the lines of; your rear axle broke and you decided you could fix it, upon jacking up the car, you saw this 'too-good-to-miss-shot. After your terrific capture, you realised you had overdone the car mechanics as your rotator cuff had torn completely. Am I close, lol.

It is a stunner!!! Well done from your muddy spot beneath the car!!!! I can just about understand you being under the car ....but the camera too??? I can't wait to hear the long story!! (Mind you I like Cat's version..Lol!!) Viv
