It does look like that doesn't it. I like how the reflection makes his beak go all wavy. Nice pic.

Excellent reflection shot Jill!

Could it be that this bird's ancestors spent too much time around a nuclear power plant? :)

Hehehehe, "stalker" there's a lot of them around.....

Cool shot! I like the composition. It reminds me of one of those old oil pumps things that used to be all over huntington beach. You probably don't have a clue what I'm talking about. :)
