Thanks for your kind words. I have a bird feeder right outside a glass sliding door at the back of my house. Since my camera is mounted on a tripod inside the house, I take multiple frames per second at 1/4000 of a second whenever birds fly up to the feeder. This particular bird arced back toward the feeder in just the right position for the late afternoon sun to make it pop. But I usually have to take several hundred pictures to get one that's of truly postable quality. I'm still waiting to get a good cardinal shot (they don't fly up quite as often).
