The biggest thing that bothers me about this picture is the chain-link fence behind the bird. It doesn't bother me that there is a chain-link fence, just that it is in the picture. I am not exactly a nature lover. I have never been camping (and don't want to go), I would probably lose my mind if a raccoon decided to take up residence in my garage, and I have reluctantly accepted the role of spider dispatcher only because there is nobody else in my house who will do it. I have no desire to go on a safari or a bird-watching expedition. I would undoubtedly get better pictures on one of those outings, but it's not worth the mental trauma.
I have no problem with zoos and cages and fences. I just wish they wouldn't show up in my photos.
