rayhennessyThis was my first time getting a chance to photograph the brilliant crown of a Golden-crowned Kinglet. My friends and I walked up on this bird as it was feeding in the low brush. It took some work to find openings but every now and then the tiny bird would perch in an open spot. I was hoping for a more nuetral or darker background but I with a little processing to brighten the already light background I ended up liking the high key look which I thought really made the bird and that splash of color stand out. Taken in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. ~ 4/5/17 ~ 1/800 sec at f/4.0 on Aperture priority ~ +1 EV ~ auto ISO 360 ~ at 500 mm using a 500 mm f/4 on a NIKON D4S #goldencrownedkinglet #kinglet #songbird #springmigration #small #tiny #bird #wildlife #nature #perched #branch #yellow #red
