Heheh, an amusing critter for sure. I like the simplistic nature of this image.

Comment by Gaia:
Very sharp focus! I also like the use of thirds in where the bird is standing, AND the different colors of the vegatation. How'd you get him/her to look right at you???

Comment by dwolff:
IMO the bird seems to be too much in the shadow. The blue seems to be muted like you were taking a picture of the field and the bird just happened to be there. And the dead space seems too busy. My eyes tend to follow the grass rather than the subject. I do like the focus of the bird and the DOF in this shot. Gave it a 6.

Wow. I'm in shock. 12th place!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. graphicfunk - I love your portfolio - I'm honoured to receive such a compliment from you. I think I spent more time capturing this shot than any other in the past. Seems it was worth it.

The place is "Whangarei Falls". It's a smallish water fall on the edge of a volcano lava flow (so my Geography teacher told me) in my home town where I grew up.

The water falls into a sort of deepish round "hole" area (40m wide?) leading to some rather nice light/shading effects at times.

It has always been a favourite location of mine. It somehow oozes peace and calmness.

"Waldo" was a fluke. At the time I was frustrated he was in the shot at all and took several, timed to hide him behind the undergrowth as he moved around looking for his own cool photo. I just happened to take the photo within the submission dates for this challenge. I nearly deleted it before I noticed the new challenge title!
