Nice, Lisa. I like the way his shadow is centered between his feet.

Dan..thanks and trust me the shadow wasn't planned..I didn't have time to think of composition..I was too busy sneaking up the side of the window (and keeping two felines at bay)..

Bob and Dawg (lol..sounds like Bob and Doug..Mckenzie..don't know if you have heard of them but they are famous Canuck icons..of beer guzzling and "g'day,eh" fame)..anyways....the window wasn't all that clean..I think I just got lucky with the glass molecules.:-)

That's real good Lisa - I can't get a bird with a black head to come out that good.

Thanks Al..I know what you mean.I had trouble with some red winged blackbirds but I read that black birds and animals are pretty difficult to capture.Maybe it kinda turned out because it had something to do with taking it thru a window..or maybe because the grackle has such a purple/bluish iridiscence to it's plumage so that it's not truly black?..now my next goal is to get a shot without two panes of glass in the way..

I know what you're saying... one of my best shots ever was taken on a severe angle through a dirty window... using a TCON-17 and a Hoya +1 close-up filter - kind of a Frankenstein camera experiment. But it worked. (I don't want to hi-jack your thread but you can find it here...:-)Far too much glass )Sometimes the camera gods smile upon us.

By the way... excellent work. Good colours and contrast. A little lost detail on the grackle's breast, but it's such a deep black, you'd probably end up blowing out your highlights if you tried to expose for that.
