State Bird of Texas

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 . . .


  1. What a nice pic! The soft focus is such a nice touch and makes the picture more interesting than it would have been otherwise. I like your accident. :-)

  2. I am pleasantly surprised by some of these accidents . . . I don't ever look at the digital screen as I'm taking photos . . . so I never have any idea what I have until I see them on the computer . . . almost like opening a Christmas present!
