1/10 sec, f40, ISO 100, -2.33EV (I keep forgetting to put these things in... :)

And I really need to get a neutral density filter for bright days. :)

I'm thinking that spot has to be an eye. There's got to be another bird there to get this pattern...

Great job getting the face focused. Congrats on the blue! What shutter speed did you use?

Is that black spec on the top (just above the birds) and a little to the left sensor dust or is that something a part of the frame? Other than that, I think you deserve every bit of this blue. Well done.
