Man...no offense at all, but the bird looks as upset as you do. It's an unusual shot in itself. Usually, we see photographs of flawless, grand specimens, and this is now a refreshing view, a photo that almost seems to tell a story of the race of life and a little hardship. I think it shows that life's experiences do ruffle us up sometimes, but they don't get us down.

Composition is good, using the branch as a leading line. Subject itself is sharp and the background simple and non-distracting. Nice work.

Sorry your car was damaged...did it happen in the process of stalking the bird?

Heheh...apologies...though I always read too much into things. The bird does look a little troubled though, as though it's been running away from something.

Hope the car will get fixed up without too much of an expense. On the flipside, a damaged car prompts other road users to beware, because the driver could be dangerous. :bsmilie:
