    Running around the farm Christmas morning, was able to snag some shots of these guys before the family got around to opening presents. :lol: c&c welcome thanks for looking, enjoy!

    1. Look closely at the reflection in his eye and you see the white barn I was in front of while taking the picture

    #1 I would expect you were using a long lens but the short DoF leaving the birds butt OOF make's it look like a close shot with a short lens. ??

    #3 I would crop the top bird completely out of the picture.

    yep- i see the barn.

    i really liked these. they are really really sharp and easy to look at. #2 is cute how hes all puffed up like that. i thought the third was unique and i liked it the best. i think it would have been really really super good if the bird wasnt RIGHT above the other bird--like maybe off to left more---but hey its not like you can ask him to move.
