Lost Opportunity?

The Magpie (Pica pica) is mocking many a photographer.

This is an experiment trying another, more creative and artistic, approach to bird photography, compared to my usual stuff.

Take an extra look at this image, there might be more to it than you first see, and think about its values as expressing the bird's (and the photographer's) mood.

Yeah been here myself many times, I think birds and animals know you are trying to take a photo and deliberately move.. Interesting result all the same.
