What Wet Paint??

What Wet Paint??


Something was wrong but he couldn't quite put his...ummmm...claw on it. :)

(While driving along a rural TX road, we watched a ranch hand spray paint metal poles surrounding the ranch property...it didn't take long for this curious "mocker" to land and take a closer look - with a case of sticky black feet as the end result.

Congratulations Finalists!!

Great capture Val. I have a few of these curious birds chatting and following we around the yard all the time. However, they are not friendly to our neighbors cat.

Hello Miss Val! What a wonderful little story, and an extremely superb capture too!! Half a second later, and you would have missed that wonderful little turn of his head, his expression that tells the story! Lovely work!!

Hi Ms.V! What a cute story and photo to go with it! Perfect timing to catch him in this awkward spot. Hope it dried quickly for him. LOL.

This is is so beautiful Val with remarkable composition, expressive pose from this bird and the gorgeous background. It's going to be an award winner for sure. So crisp and so very well done. Excellent work as always.

Marvelous capture of this bird (that is new to me), Val! Beautifully composed, he is so striking against the green background. Do you know that the first thing I thought of after reading this story was "I hope he doesn't get sick from trying to get the paint off his feet", but I guess there is little chance of that, LOL!
