Thanks, Adam. Actually, it's a frame I set up behind my bird feeder where I can change different colors and patterns of cloth for different effects. It works quite well.

Thanks, Susan.... but it didn't take me very long to find out that a red background DID NOT work well! Just too much of a good thing! Very distracting.
