Default It Wouldn't Move

Not an unusual sight but this Mocking Bird would not move, I was forced to photograph it.

handy when the wont move =) give you time to setup nice shot with a nice background =) but yeah lovely shots pin sharp and with gorgeous and not distracting bokeh.

only minor thing is that twig pointing at its head in the second shot - somehow it is less noticable in the 3rd shot though but #1 is my fav
