I see you!

By Blundez    
Unforgivable but I have not managed to find out what this is. That said, had fun stalking it at the Lizard just past the Lighthouse in Cornwall.

Very very windy so was lying down with my long lens with IS switched on but still frustratingly didnt manage to get it crisp, however I do like the pose and the DOF.

Shot at ISO200 / F5.6 / 1/350 sec / 400mm
Lens - Sigma 120-400 HSM

Lovely shot. I like the windswept feathers.

This would be dinner for my last 3 posts, so best keep them apart. Smile

This is really nice. I love the definition in the wind swept feathers and the totally neutral background gives the bird and the moss even more emphasis.

These sorts of shots are always opportunistic and they take real patience if your looking for them, so it's a testiment to your abilities that you can capture a pic of this type at this quality.

I do kind of wish there was more light around to the left hand side so the birds head and eye may have been brought out a bit, but who knows, the picture may not be half as good.
