Terrific photo, Susan! The colors are dazzling and the composition's great. That feather sticking up is TOTALLY the "icing on the cake!" Really laughed when I took a look at this! I could kind of hear her sayng, "DON'T take my photo now! My hair's a fright!" What a capture! Love it!

Funny title and amazing details and colors, Susan! I wish you would tell us what lens you used because if you crawled up to this bird and hand held the camera and got this much detail it makes the image even better.

I can see you doing the "slinky snake" moves to catch every little detail on this pigeon, Susan...
And you succeeded! The clarity and colors are wonderful, and that tiny tuft on top no doubt inspired you to come up with that perfect title! Definitly a winner!
