One from last week walking around the cliff tops by the coast trying to find passage migrants. There was just a small gap between light coloured rocks where I could see the bird and this gave the image a natural frame!! Hope you like it!!

Thanks for your votes last week much appreciated.

Have a great day

Bill

Just wounder if this might be better cropped in tighter, keep some of the white area but it would focus you more in on your subject

Very nice this one with the "shooting through" technique which makes for nice framing. I do agree with Richard that a tighter crop would benefit the image.
