Red-Winged Blackbird [169]

with one comment

Red-Winged BlackbirdI’ve been trying to get a good picture of a Red-winged Blackbird for a few weeks. It’s difficult to get a well-balanced exposure of a dark subject. My previous attempts usually had a brighter background that washed out completely if the bird was properly exposed. Or I got a silhouette which didn’t show off the red colors in the wing.

If you look closely, you might be able to see a band on this bird’s leg.

  1. I’ve never been able to get a good photo of a red wing black bird. Usually I see them when I’m out for a photo walk, and they don’t allow me to get very close before they fly a safe distance.

    Great job on this one.

    I’ll keep trying.
