Great colors and effects Norm! I think it looks great! #122711

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)

Correction Dale Ann. The shutter speed was 1/28 sec. (lop sided grin)

Looks great to me Norman!! #510030

Norman P. Banks 4/29/2004 4:55:01 PM

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.
