I like the shot but I'm sure this will fail the DPC Test :-)

I'll only be disappointed if it doesn't reach the 5's and receive no comments.

Although I can really portray in the title why I feel this meets the quote but this Noisy Minor bird has been dive-bombing my cat for days (must have a nest near by) and the cat has just been taking it in her stride. However, her patience seems to be getting thin. Until this challenge I had never heard of this movie (neither had anyone else in my family) so I canít honestly say this would fit the theme of the movie. But knowing itís a comedy and the shot is a little funny (to me at least) I hopefully havenít missed the mark by too much.

Taking the shot was not that easy as the bird would disappear whenever I opened the door. So I had to open the door and take the shot quickly and no really compose it the way I would like. The lighting was also difficult but it usually is when taking candids isnít it? I probably should have spent more time post processing but time is a luxury I canít afford recently.
