EXTREMELY EXCITED RIGHT NOW .. !! ..
caps intended .. ;)


an hour and a half till rollover and i've been sitting over 7 for the entire day .. was in the high 6's yesterday .. hoping for a ribbon .. any colour will do .. ;)

thankyou so much everyone for your excellent comments and being recognized again with not an insect or a tod .. lol .. ;)

here's some info on the noisy miner which is a bird native to australia .. :)

ps to add ..
totally agree with ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' LevT .. i wish i could have got more of the bird in the reflection .. but to do that i would lose the bokeh as i'd be shooting at a higher angle .. :)

The look of wonder on the bird’s face!! This captures so much more than a technically perfect photo! It captures personality…. And life! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

This is so beautiful and poetic Roz! Love the colorful bokeh and the reflection of her feet (I wish there were a little more of that). Congratulations on your ribbon!

Great title for this lovely image. Hard not to anthropomorphize, as this bird seems just so joyful. The bokeh is evidence of beauty and happiness.

Great and fitting title and I love the light and bokeh. Just figured out the bottom - he's singing in (or on??) the bath! I think that excuses the "cut-off" tail - bumping to an 8.
