Beautiful photo, Dave! These guys are hard to catch! I usually see them on a hike I take at a nearby park but they’re always in the dark woods or in a pine tree, and with them being dark it’s hard to make them stand out in a photograph! So it’s really nice you had a light contrasting BG to really make him stand out! Nicely done!
A nice bird,Dave . I don’t see too many images of this one. I like its perch and trhe profile shot; but I think the image might benefit from burning the background highlights. The bird looks a little overexposed.
