About the Image(s)

About: While this species is found in my area, it is not common in the habitat of my local park. So when this one showed up I followed it around as it sallied out from the tree tops catching bugs. Mostly it was pretty obscured by leaves, but it did give me one fairly open pose, in the deep shade of course. Nikon Z8, 500mm, 1/1600, f/5.6, ISO2500. Processing: Crop, adjusted white balance (I shoot in fixed sunny), increased exposure and brightness, Topaz denoise.

Hey Cindy, very nice image Which is well exposed, sharp, nice pose and pleasant colors. I might suggest bringing out the catch light in the eye as a slight improvement Would make a nice wall hanger in any home. Bruce
