Found this guy perched on the railing outside my front door this morning. Very cooperative, moving to face me as I moved around. Thanks for looking!

#2 is interesting, but #3 is a neat shot. Well done.

I love that first one...if Ken thinks #3 is neat, then I'm sure it is...but since I don't see a third one I can only take his word for it

Thanks for all the kind words! When I saw him sitting there this morning I grabbed my camera and got some shots quickly before sending my kids off to school - #2 is natural light shooting up with the overcast sky as the background. A little while later I went back with a speedlight; luckily he was still there and I got #1. Other than raw file processing / leveling, I didn't work these at all.

Cool, the perspective in #2 is interesting and original. Nice shots!

Hey Ken - it goes 1, the 2 then 3. If there are only two photos, you stop counting at 2. I hope this clears things up for you. At least that's how it goes south of the border, but since you are north of the border, YMMV...

Both are nice Eric, but 1 is the winner for me ~ Ron

Thanks for all the kind words! Here's a couple more (now there really is a #3!)

#3 - a little bit of the natural background






#4 - I think he's looking for conversation
