Default scared upside-down!

I just got my 10D Friday, which caused it to rain all weekend. But I got this shot before I went to work, out the kitchen window. A nuthatch was minding its own business at my feeder, eating some seeds when an incoming sparrow scared him. This was the result:

Not the most exciting picture, but not bad for the limited time and location.

I'm interested in any and all comments about anything, as this is my first picture posted to the web anywhere (I created the web page by hand in about 5-minutes, so it's a little crude.) I really need to sign up for pbase.

Very nice shot indeed. It shows clearly that you bought the right camera! The quality is execellent IMO.
Presenting a photo should include some sort of frame. Not something fancy, but just a frame that suits the background. Since this is presented on white background - you could choose a thin black frame, this would do good to your shot!

Thanks for the kind words. I'll go play with irfanview and see if I can put a black border on it.

I broke out the big bucks and got the 100-400L for my long lens (which I used for the shot.) I wish I had something faster already... but when its bright enough for that lens, it's an amazing tool.
