Picture of the day - February 1, 2009

Today's picture features a very pensive-looking mockingbird. The
mockingbird is the "state bird" of the great state of Texas (and
several other states as well), and photographer Bill Perry did an
excellent job at photographing this one - apparently during a moment
of deep reflection! Actually, Mr. Perry says the fowl was sitting on
a fence singing a song when this picture was taken, but it does look
quite lost in thought nonetheless.
Here are the camera and settings used to capture this image:
