That's a song by "Bread", isn't it? ;)
This little baby Mourning Dove must've just taken his 1st flight, and landed on a rail not 10ft from me on the deck. He just sat there for the longest time, trying to figure out which way back home was. I was doing some testing with my Better Beemer on my D2X/200-400VR+TC 1.4. So, not wanting to waste this goldn opportunity, I fired off several shots of this slightly bewildered creature, before he finally decided that was enough. Bet he was on that rail for almost 5 mins!
The wide shot, and no, his tail isn't in the shot here, but it's very very short anyway.

Very nice Steve. The second may need a tad less USM, but it is an amazing image in any case.

WHat happened, was I did 2 versions of it, and 1 was sharpened twice. That was the one I embedded. I fixed that. Thanks!

Thanks Brian, I love that 1st one too!

Even though I oversharpened it. I did upload a new version of it that hasn't been sharpened quite so much. Hope that one is showing now!
