White-winged Crossbill - Loxia leucoptera leucoptera - Male

Photographed with a Canon 1DX / EF 800mm f/5.6l IS USM lens combination at the Algonquin Provincial Park Visitors Centre feeders.

 

At the moment this photograph was taken a snow squall was sweeping through. But to the east the sky was clear and a lateral beam of sunlight cut through and lit the scene. You can see the difference in the colour the sun brought out compared to the next photo when the sky was completely clouded over.

 

I like this photograph now but when I took it I didn't and meant to reformat the CF card. Happily I didn't.
