In the Belly of the Sun by FriendFrog In the Belly of the Sun by FriendFrog
Went to the beach this weekend. So many bird photos to go through... :faint:

The image has a warm inviting feeling. The color has plenty of vibrance and blends very well . And the silhouette of the bird contrasts the sun perfectly by only allowing a fraction of light to encompass the subject. The bokeh and exposure complements the image by separating the subject from the background, while still keeping the image smooth throughout. The composition and perspective fits the photo by drawing the viewers attention with not only lighting but color. Having a single subject adds a feeling of isolation and keeps the background clean. The photo handles noise quite well even though it was taken in a low light situation. Great photo, definitely a favorite. :)

OHH don't think that specie is around the Great Lakes. Here we consider them rats with wings. From their habit of scavenging. Is not meant maliciously.

FriendFrog Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
Yes, they're all over the east coast. They can be very aggressive when there's food around. I've heard people call pigeons 'rats with wings' as well, more in cities though.

Everything has the need to eat. I like deer...when there skin is already tanned by the sun.
