Piwakila (thanks) Dale Ann! (smile)

During the shot the bird moved its head slightly which at 1/5.7 sec was enough to put it just out of focus. No matter what I did, it still did not look right! (frown)

Thank you Robin for that nice comment.

I felt that I had to do something with this pic. The colors were so viberant and the birds tail & tree trunk made a perfect inverted V.
