Sing High

by RussLynch from Paradise CA on 13 Jul 2019

For my first time shooting songbirds I got lucky and came away with some amazing shots, this one being probably my favorite. I got this White Throated-Sparrow just off a dirt rd in the Goulds. In this shot you can see him sitting high on his perch head up singing to his hearts content. Even getting eaten with the flies theres just something about being out in nature hearing and seeing this birds in person that makes you feel alive.

Amazing shot indeed. Sharpness of details is great. I share your feelings about being in nature. Shooting birds is someting I added to my walks in nature... for the pleasure.
