Very nice, but not perfect. For a perfect image there would need to be bird poo as well. Exquisite snow detail, by the way ;-)

in another thread, i asked someone about a background they used for a macro shot, and they responded that they had a stock of out of focus cloudy skies. I responded i had a similar set of shots from my missed BIF shots
