Blackbird  

blackbird, originally uploaded by plingthepenguin.

Not a cat pic! (There is one new cat pic uploaded tho, if you were getting withdrawal symptoms ;) )

To do proper photos like this I think I'd need a tripod, more of an idea what I was doing re focus, and more patience. The last of these probably being the stumbling block in the long term. But for all the sloppyness it's a pretty neat pic.

I do hope the blackbird hasn't got a nest somewhere totally dumb - our cat may not be the greatest hunter, but there's a lot of cats around the area. Still, for now the blackbird seems quite happy hanging out in our garden in the evenings, bobbing around the grass collecting things (mostly food, I think?).

you can do clever bracketing stuff with varied exposure settings, and create an HDR image using hugin. very spiffy.
having a tripod makes this easier.
