Took this last week at the Trotters World of Animals in the Lake District. It was a nice sunny day and I have tried to underexpose it slightly as to not overexpose the white feathers on the head. I haven't managed to do this as well as I would have liked. Quite happy with the DOF as the background is blurred. The bird was quite still therefore I didn@t need to worry tto much about the shutter speed. Therefore I used aperture priority on this photo and used F4.5 (largest I could get on my camera at this level of zoom).
I have tried to put the birds eye a third of the way down and left some space for it to look into.
Any comments and advice welcome
