    PHOTO EDITING NOT OK
    this colorful little fellow was flitting about in the upper branches of the fir trees, 50 feet above my head, snacking on the seeds from fir cones. this shot didn't come out as well as i'd have liked, partly due, i suspect, to the fact that my neck was developing a serious cramp from looking almost straight up for 5 minutes, and trying to keep that honkin' lens locked on to very small, mobile targets! the slow shutter speed didn't help either!! 30D, 400mm, 1/160 @ f7.1
