    Taken with my Tamron 35-105 f2.8 on a Canon D30.

    This fellow flew right by my head and landed at my feet as I was positioning myself for a good shot of a local lake. Surprised, I dropped down low and started shooting. It was as if the feathered friend flew right up to say hi and pose for a picture.

    Great shot! :D Immediately brought a smile to my face. You have nice composition, and your colors are spot on. Love that reflected blue in the water.

    Well done! :thumbsup:

    The subject is totally centered in the frame, which goes against the 'tradition' of the rule of thirds, but there's such a nice strong diagonal that I don't think that holds it back. I LOVE the color saturation and crisp focus. Only really minor nitpick is that the tailfeather is just the tiniest bit clipped at the top of the frame.
