The creation of the creamy bokeh was accomplished by moving my feet, in order to align the subject and an eye-pleasing background. This was not an accident, nor just good luck. Selecting a subject and background with a lot of separation is the key.

A fitting title for a fine photo -- nice going!

Okay. First, I really love how the title fits the image. (I really needed that smile and I laughed out loud.) Then, as I continued to study your pic I have fallen in love with it.

Thanks so much!

I agree, too many "photographers" do not move there feet in order to be able to obtain both the right FG and complimentary BG especially when photographing wild life. 7.

well I sure do like the definition of those punked feathers, and his over all non-plussedness.

Youngsters should avoid caffeine LOL. Cute bird; bokeh is subtle, but sets off the bird nicely.

LOL at the title! I'm seeing a lot of the beautiful, creamy bokeh in this challenge, which I really like. This bird is all fluffed out and sporting a mohawk
