„With great Power comes great responsibility“

… and we all know what happened to Icarus.

When I saw the birds fighting outside over seeds in the bird house I knew I wanted to take a picture of that. Unfortunately they were all gone when I got outside, so I got everything ready and waited… and waited… and waited. Finally this little guy showed up. I got 4 frames and he was off again. One of those was a full frontal shot with the wings perfectly spread… which was also totally unsharp (I was cursing like a sailer), on two he was at the edge of the frame entering and exiting the picture and you see the fourth one above. Not perfectly sharp, but I kind of like it. Yes, it’s his backside.
