This is a great shot Mike! The bird is a little dark but the crystal clear clarity of the splashing water drops and the stop action make this a wonderful capture. Very nice contest entry :)

What a cool shot of a bird having fun in a birdbath. The water drops are like he is having a shower. They are so much fun to watch. Good capture.

Oh my! An oriole I presume? I hope you got one of him after he dried off and fluffed himself up all clean and shiny. Thanks for sharing, that is a precious moment! Daphne Oberon

    thanks A male oriole. He was the first to try out my new birdbath.

So cute! Another keen eye observance. Great stop action shot. I love how its shape and coloring fits right in with the two bird sculptures in the birdbath. It all looks seamless. Well done.

Oh, what a fun summertime action photo! I love the big splash this colorful bird is making in the birdbath. He looks like he is having a great time frolicking and splashing about so vigorously that he is splashing water beyond the birdbath.

Funny, as I'm reviewing this... I hear the Orioles outside singing... they have such a distinctive song.

I love the touches of orange these birds are known for as they splash around the birdbath.

nice stop action too by the way.

Nicely done.
