Candy, he's gorgeous! It's a young one? Such a great expression! I'd love to hear about your choice of spot metering and if that's a good choice for white birds.

Fantastic shot, as always!   Posted: 06/05/2021 21:12:47

Thanks, it is a mature adult in breeding plumage. I always use spot metering. If used correctly, it prevents over exposing the whites. Best choice for white birds.   Posted: 06/06/2021 18:55:11

The unusual pose makes this image a winner. You have cleaned up the background so that there are no distractions.   Posted: 06/08/2021 12:36:48

One eyed portraits in people are usually not attractive but maybe with birds there is a bit more leeway?   Posted: 06/08/2021 13:41:55
