Sony a6000 radio triggered

Lightroom to finish

Last of 5 Bluebird babies fledging over the course of a weekend. This is the morning after the first 3 fledged and the Papa was using the berry to coax the last on out before the yard got busy with morning feedings.

The first baby out landed on and crapped upon my Sony a6000. Not sure if it was annoyed with the constant shutter noise or if it's simply a Nikon fan. :)

This is an excellent example of a) knowing your equipment and your subject matter very well, and b) an expert touch with processing. Really a great shot!

This is outstanding and I'm glad it placed well in Free Study.
Indeed, had it not been for 21.gif Cuttooth's excellent image, this would have had the Blue.
It had my 10.

Thanks, Mark. I can't complain - it's my best finish ever in FS, and now I get to post one of these to my profile. :)
