Default Fast reflexes!

My cockatiel has such quick reflexes that he's able to extend his wings during a flash exposure. I think the camera may actually fire the flash twice rapidly, but still, it's amazing that he can move so fast.

It could have been framed better, I know, but his wings weren't out when I composed the picture! It's actually hard to get decent pictures of him when he lands on doors or other unusual places, because he's usually scared by the focus assist beam (which on the F717 is a laser matrix).

You're right that it could have been framed better, but considering the obstacles you face with Mr. Bird, I'd say this is one darned fine photo.
