Not much luck in getting bird shots. Took a shot of a black bird at a local park from my car window. He was too close to me. I did some cropping.

If looks could kill.....the most expression I've ever seen in a birds face. Apparently he wasn't very happy about being photographed, hehe!

Am I the only one who is frighteningly reminded of a mother-in-law?

Hi there;

This is very nice. The details are nice and clear.

You mention that you shot this from your car. I have found that I can sometimes get a lot closer to wildlife in my car than I can on foot. This was especially true this summer as I was trying to get close to a great bue heron at a local marina.

Once again... nice work.

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Thanks Tom and I agree with you about using the car as a blind. Works all the time.

Overwhelming expression on that one. I love that little touch of shadow under the beak.
