Default Last Grackle.. I Promise!!

Just had to post this one. The irridesence of the feathers really shows nicely. Used -1.3 exposure comp., the peanuts in the feeder look a tad "hot" to me.

Beautiful colours and WOW, what eyes!
You know, I sat out in my backyard today hoping to get a shot of a bird, squirrel, heck, even an ant would have been something. There is usually a flurry of activity in our small yard but today - NOTHING!
As soon as I came in, all activity resumed. I guess they're trying to tell me something. Oh well, I'll just have to be patient and let them all get used to me.
With all the shots you've taken, they must just think you're part of the environment.
Again, great shot

Thanks Tracey, if you haven't already, try putting out some "snacks" to attract the little friends. Peanut butter mixed with cornmeal is usually a good bet. Have you looked at Moose Petersen's site: http://www.moose395.net/index.html Lots of good info there. You might also try visiting your local nature store and have a look at the "identiflyer". It's a small electronic unit that can reproduce various calls, this may help attract more visitors. Check here: http://www.identiflyer.com/items.asp?ID=1
