Twist and Shake!

By Lillian  
"GULP"! This is seconds after yesterdays shot with the goldfish! His satisfaction of his Lunch and now a good shake... to look for deserts?

I entered this shot into a photographic club competition ...same title... and the judge commented.." As this was taken in some foreign zoo, and not a lot of effort was need, I am marking it low"..7 out of 10!!! shows what some of them know.... He did not even know it was a Heron.....

I am leaving this open for mods as I want you to come up with a balloon funny, if you would ( I do not know how to do this) and explain how you did it please, If you can spare the time...But I KNOW you have a funny caption for this.
Large is great.

Thank you for yesterdays comment,
A BIG thank you to Lee (WL_Harris) for my award on "Cheetah Time"

lovely capture, I added the caption bubble by using the shape tool in photoshop to draw the ellipse (hold down alt to make it expand out from where you clicked) i then drew the bottom triangle using the pen tool.
I hope that helps you.

Excellent fun Lillian and love how in the midst of all the chaos you've got the head and eye sharp with that haughty stare Smile

I know this wasn't a zoo, but seems wrong anyway if the judge is scoring according to how many miles your hiked and how many hours you waited. Not that these aren't necessary to get some shots, but surely the image should stand on its own merits. (& decent zoo shots do require technique and practise too)

Mod added given the prima-donna look Smile (and slightly cropped too)
