Cattail Perched Red-winged blackbird
View Large On Black
I want to dedicate this one to the one-year anniversary of Feathery Friday, one of the funnest and most friendly groups around! Come join us in the festivities!
And let me just say properly exposing a black bird in bright light is one heck of a challenge, I think this one would have been easier and turned out better had I used a fill flash.
This was taken in Weld County, CO east of Greeley at Latham Reservoir yesterday (3/22/07).
