A family holiday gave me the opportunity to wander with my camera in a less frantic way.
Patience really does pay off sometimes.
This is a crop from the middle of of a frame. I really would like that 100-400mm now… and not just for motorsport.
I also exported a back and white version, and feel like it makes the bird pop from the background more. I guess in colour all the green somewhat makes the Tui blend into the background, but when it is just tones that contrast beween background and subject is more notable. There are no edits to the image from the colour, other than changing to B&W. I found it an interesting exercise, anyway.
