    “Existentialism means that no one else can take a bath for you” — Delmore Schwartz

    We have two of these baby birds living in our front yard ... this one enjoyed a bath in the sprinkler this morning.

      Hey Sally, you are right ... 1/500 to 1/160 :) The main image was pretty underexposed initially.
      I used my 70-200mm with a 1.4 teleconverter ... this was taken at 280mm from a pretty close distance. There is no crop factor zoom in this image ... taken on a full frame camera and the square crop here just removed a bit of rubbish from one side.
      :) thank you Stephanie, you are right ... the way to put a photo in the comments is to upload to your photo stream but set as private, so that it shows up to only you, not even friends. Then you just grab the link (under the Share options) and paste it into the comments box.

      These are wonderful. I love the drenched feathers combined with the sprinkling water. And the quizzical look is great too!
