So... I was sick all week, and of course it's last minute.

I put out food for the squirrel, hoping that he would stand behind the camera with one paw on the shutter button. But after about 30 minutes, I realized that I felt too crappy, and couldn't wait for a squirrel. All I had was a grey cat bird that was standing behind the camera.

Tried doing a self portrait. Hate self portraits!! Tried throwing lots of layers on it to make it more interesting:


Didn't work.

Stuck the self portrait in the lens of the camera shot. Added some layers. And gave up.

Incredibly surprised at the score. Don't care for it much, myself. But then again, I'm in it, so it wouldn't be my favorite. :)

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!

Awesome image! Me thinks a victim of short attention span during voting. Much here to be appreciated, but more than can be taken in instantly. Masterfully done.
