About the Image(s)

This was taken on Sanibel Island, FL. in 2013. I was always taken with the humorous posture of the second bird, but until recently wasn’t able to present the image that I saw in my mind.

Nikon D5100, Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens @ 65mm
ISO 100, f/16, 1/640 sec.

I find this a great, fun, photograph. I think you did a great job with the composition, lighting, depth of field and focus. I like how you edited the photo to eliminate some of the extraneous birds, leaving only those that were marching along with the Lieutenant, and how you captured the Lieutenant checking out his troops over his shoulder.   Posted: 02/10/2021 18:09:38

David, thanks for sharing this fun image. I think we all know a Lieutenant in our lives..... Good for site to remove a number of the birds, keeping only those which made the image strong. Nice job with Dof, composition, focus and timing.   Posted: 02/15/2021 15:15:41
