Only two defining forces have ever committed to die for you:
Jesus Christ for your soul and
The American G.I. for your freedom.

Goldfinch On Our Birdbath

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.

The photo was shot with the trusty 18-200mm general purpose lens at 200mm (300 mm on a 35 mm film camera).
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.

Be sure to fill the screen by clicking on the thumbnail.
