Wow! Excellent capture, Kenny.
Imagine our surprise when this bird flew down and sat at the next table to us. Then I spotted the toast left on the plate……. This clever bird had learnt leftover breakfasts were easy pickings!
A beautiful picture. I am very impressed with your bird photo's...Very good work :-))
I must be getting old, I remember when you only saw a magpie in the countryside!
This is a great photo for a Newcastle supporter, as here he shows in black and white. Often you can see many colours!
All the best Peter
Hey Kenny! This is a great capture!! That penguin looks so small though ;D kidding! Cute magpie!
Great capture and portrait. He´s very difficult to catch!
Great shot Kenny, lucky you!! We have them in our garden,but they're a bit wary,as soon as you move they're off.
Lovely Magpie Kenny
I shall try to equal this next week as I am visiting a land of magpies then.
But like Neil says, they are somewhat timid!
All the best ol' buddy - Jethro
That will be Newcastle I take it?
So beautiful. L
wonderful capture... really good! LIKE
A beautiful capture of a beautiful bird, Kenny, and even better when enlarged. Cheers! Theolfa
Hi Samad Talebpour and els f Thanks for your kind words.
Theolfa you are right it does look better enlarged and I am even more pleased that even when enlarged nobody noticed I have reworked the background!
The original taken at f25 had the background in focus. A bit of work in Photoshop selecting the background only allowed me to add a heavy blurr. I also sharpened the birds eye for maximum effect then cropped away loads of surrounding rubbish.
Well worth the effort, I think you'll agree.
I do agree, Kenny, and I particularly noticed the eye, because I was looking for a reflection of you. :D
Ha! zoom in on THIS ONE for a good reflection.
Great shot, Kenny!!! LIKE!!! Greetings, helianta.
Thanks Helianta Yes this one does seem popular and as a specimen shot I didn't think it was that good as I cropped the tail out of the shot.
A silver star for this one Kenny but since we don't have silver it will have to be Gold YSL ~ All the best ~ nick
Wow - thanks Nick
