Lucky shot

As any practising digi-scoper will know, a little bit of luck is always much appreciated. Boy was I grateful when I pulled off this shot of a jay.
Not only did the bird strike the perfect pose, it managed to peek through all the tangled willow twigs and branches too.
To add to my flukiness the camera (canon ixus 55) I was holding up to my scope (Nikon ED 60) was telling me it wanted to use the flash because the light was so poor (I've never taken a decent shot through my scope when the flash goes off). I pulled the trigger regardless and hey presto.
So there you go, a little bit of hope for us all.
