About the Image(s)

Happy New Year! Wishing everyone lots of good health.
I photographed this ruby crowned kinglet displaying its crown in full color as it was playing with a female kinglet in December 2021. The final photo is a minor adjustment of shadows in Lightroom.

Nikon D500: 500mm, ISO 1400, f/5.6, 1/1000s

Beautiful bird and beautifully sharp photo of the Kinglet. Is that an insect or a feather in its beak?

I know how hard it is to capture birds like this with a smooth background, but the background in this photo is its weakest element, IMO.

Beautiful, sharp capture of a very difficult bird. I find the small guys are almost impossible to get nice clean backgrounds. So would it be nice to have a clean background, sure, but it does not take away from the great capture of the bird. I just love that bright orange tuft on it's head!   Posted: 01/20/2022 14:57:23
