CCC: Bathing Blackbird
Splashier in large.
I was out with my macro lens photographing flowers when I heard this blackbird splashing in the water-plant pot! I crept slowly over, and he continued with his ablutions and let me get quite close before flitting off...
I've uploaded a few other pics to Flickr (right from here) including some more Ipheion shots (1 & 2).
