This mockingbird is sitting on the shepherds hook that sits right outside my front door . . . that dead vine is the remnants of last year's morning glories . . . the soft focus affect was another one of those accidents . . . I am in the house . . . shooting through the screen door . . . if you look real close, you can actually make out the mesh of the screen . . . had to do manual focus again . . . auto-focus, once again, could not figure out what to focus on . . .
