Pictures of the day: 22 February 2011

Two goldfinches have a mid-air fight after struggling to get enough space on a bird feeder in a British back garden. Photographer Laurie Campbell snapped away from a hide in his garden for 30 hours to get a picture he was happy with. Laurie, from Berwick-on-Tweed, Northumberland, said: "It can take weeks for the goldfinches to find this bait but once they do, they are hooked."

There are a few things to point out in this picture, first thing, depth of field, this picture makes the mushroom the main focus, whilst the background is blurred. Also, we can see the texture inside of the mushroom. I like this picture the most it is zoomed in, and the texture is smooth.
