Open Thread: Another Bird

Just another bird.  Picture taken in South Portland, Maine just off the Fore River estuary, November 25th, 2015.  The bird stayed so far away that this picture isn't scaled down at all (cropping to the area around the bird was enough to make it blog-sized) which means that all of the cruddy artifacts of an imperfect camera and an unsteady hand are visible.

At least the bird did give a decent profile shot.

This, by the way, is why I take pictures with the maximum resolution my camera allows: even at 21 times optical zoom, if this picture hadn't been shot in 4608x3456, that bird would be a handful of pixels that might as well have been a pine-cone for all the sense of birdness they'd have evoked.


Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us, so give us something new to explore!
