This was made with the “Bigma”, the 50-500mm F4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM telephoto zoom wide open at 500mm (1/1000 F6.3 ISO 400). I was walking along the shoreline, and noticed this little fledgling redwing blackbird on the ground and was able to find a great angle with the shade and sun to make the beak and head really pop from the background. This shot feels “chromish” to me in terms of the quality of light and it has almost a living, breathing quality to me.
