"I Feel Pretty"

An older image from February 2009 when I met up with Mia McPherson at Fort De Soto.
This Little Blue was hunting in a tidal pool near North Beach. Its Narcissistic pose reminded me of the West Side Story lyrics.

E-3 Zuiko 300 F/2.8 +EC-20 on tripod, ISO 400 1/640 f6.3, full frame cropped to 3:2 aspect.

Hi Bill,

A nice pose and I especially like the reflection. It is a fairly clean image and the small dots of floating material help provide a sense of depth. So I got nits for you. Well done…Jim

Cool pose and a nice shooting angle…
I would clean up that nice blue water.

A very cool pose and reflection, Bill. Technically excellent as well.

Excellent post, color, detail and reflection. I think I would move the bird in the reflection down in the frame just a little bit to make the image a little less centered. Of course this is a matter of taste.

Great pose and reflection you caught Bill. No nits from me. I like your title too.
