Default Me and my reflection...

So this little birdy decided to have a tussle with her reflection on my car's side-view mirror.

I tried to capture the conflict as best I could. Perhaps I should have used shutter mode?

Feedback, hints, comments, pls pls pls most welcome.

Images cropped and resized using Fastone.

Exclt shots...that is hilarious!...very cute bird...

Your shots look good to me...little faster shutter speed on the first one (1/800 or higher?) would have stopped/froze the flutter of the bird...second one looks great...third looks like the camera was back focusing on the car window frame slightly?...still VERY nice captures in my book love the details and the sharp eyes/feathers on the bird...

Good, fun shots. I don't imagine you really had a lot of time to play with settings! A little faster on the first shot but I don't mind the wing blur much, it captures context.

I kind of like the first one as is. It shows the motion in the wings which I think shows that the bird was excited about the reflection.
