Default Sleepy time

I posted this in the wildlife forum but, since everybody here doesn't browse over there I wanted to share these here too.

I went for a walk the other day around the park an managed to get a few shots of several birds. As he sat there sleeping, he became vaguely aware
someone was watching him...




Crops are just to give a closer look of his eyes


Oh, this sunshine feels so good, I'm getting sleepy...



I could sleep all day but,...


... I keep getting the felling someone is watching me...



whats that?


Wait a minuet, that's a person over there.



Ack!


When he finally realized I was watching he he decided to leave.

Lovely colors on this set. Exif says you were shooting at about 1 Pm which I figured would have made for harsh and washed out lighting...what's the secret??

No real secret jelpee. I did get quite a bit of blow out, especially on the all white birds I shot but, I did my best to minimize it in Photoshop.
