Eastern Kingbird

Silhouette of a Kingbird with a Bee

Viewed 18 Times

There is no such thing as bad lighting, just lighting that forces you out of your comfort zone. This kingbird was terribly backlit, with no opportunity to move to a better vantage point. You have to work with the lighting you have and so I tried something completely different. I really liked the way the light was silhouetting the kingbird and his perch, so I lowered my exposure several stops to get this image. I was very pleased with this final result of a kingbird clutching a bee he just caught. Some days I might just have moved on assuming there was no opportunity for a good image, but I am glad that I did not.

I like it too. Shots that you have to work at a little to decipher what’s going on have more going for them. Glad you didn’t pass it up.
