Default Had a little trouble with this guy

He was buried really deep in our confederate jasmine bush, but I had spotted him. Getting a focus on him and enough light was another matter, but hey, I thought the eye turned out nice.

You were right that twinkle in his eye makes this shot so good.

That little trouble was what makes it great, if it had been completely sharp it wouldn't have been so interresting. Now my eyes keep going from the eye to those it's feet.

Composition is of the scale,

real great shot

Jim,

When shooting subjects that like to hide in deep thicket you do the best you can. I think you did just that, and came away with a nice photo.

I think it is an outstanding shot. The focus is on the eye, and the colors are dreamy. I agree with Ronny, the foot keeps grabbing my attention... Robert
