Jackdaw

By justin c
I was attracted to how the birds dark plumage contrasted with the colourful,lighter background.
I positioned the lens as low as possible in order to get a diffused foreground and background.
An attractive species I think,especially with that bright eye.

All comments welcome and appreciated.

A wonderful image. The detail in the bird is spot on, as is that wonderful golden background. I always struggle with black birds, but you have proved it can be done
