What a funny shot, Shalu. How often is that likely to occur? I've certainly never seen it. I'll bet you got a good chuckle out of seeing it happen.

It is a fun shot. I bet I could get my yard bluebirds to do that..hmmm...

An especially nice shot, Shalu. This kind of image quality with so much magnification is very impressive.

Thank you very much, Mike!

This is really quite an attractive shot, Shalu. This bird is looks more well groomed than most, and the composition plus the lighting are really nice.
