This is the real thing -- not a composite image as I did in a previous post using Rick Sammon's urgings to make a picture.
In this image I actually shot through the pickets of our deck railing that are spaced 4.5 inches apart.

Note that the bird has a shadow cast onto the birdbath. While it is easy to create a shadow in Photoshop, I have not done this in this photo.
