A starling, best viewed in the original size, as it has been severely cropped. After taking the photos at the Rodeo Hall of Fame, we stopped at McDonald's for lunch. This little fella was chirping away in the tree near our car. Although I did not have the best lens on the camera for the job, I snapped a shot anyway and was surprised with the detail I got in such a severely cropped image.
Thanks to all of you for your wonderful response to my shot of the cowboy on the bucking bronco. I liked the shot, but didn't anticipate so many of you would like it, too. I have to get up early tomorrow to go to some sort of martial dance exercise class. My hubby and I take pilates several times a week, but I've never done anything like this. I'm afraid it may wear me out. It is snowing again a bit this evening. We've had over 22 inches of snow so far this winter, but only a few inches at a time, so we never have a lot on the ground. We have not even shoveled our driveway this year...knock on wood. Hope you have a chance to do something enjoyable and relaxing this weekend!
Incidentally, the Apple store did give me a new mouse. I did not have to be pushy or anything. As soon as they realized it did not work, they said they would replace it.
