Mom European Starling kept feeding her plump fledgling, but not the one who really needed the seeds. Was she confused or inexperienced? Does she need to learn about sharing? It is the one on the viewers right, which is continually fed by the mother.

Lovely capture, Bunny. I like the almost hidden, intimate look the bokeh background gives this.

Thank you all for your comment. The original bokeh out of the camera is really bothersome. Kind of like asymmetrical composition. So, I was looking for ways to reduce it completely, like a new background (sky). Then, I found some one methods, taught previously by instructors, and finally in Nik Color Efex pro 3 Complete.

Go to my Susan Snow gallery, where I have more room, and I'll post comparisons of the same shot.

I really appreciate your comments and guidance.

Thank you, JudyAnn.

So, you like all the busy bokeh background? I thought it too busy and have been trying to tone it down.

Any suggestions are welcome.
