Bird on the Wire

Bird on the Wire

Another shot taken while waiting for Tui to land, this small bird chirped his hardest to get my attention.

There are some weird optical effects happening with this shot, this blurry background is a Flax branch that is actually in front of the wires, but due to shallow D.O.F. and light refraction it appears in the background, also I noticed that the bird sometimes looks towards down and the left, when it is actually looking away down and to the left.

Sharpen, Crop, Vignette, B&W, ND Grad (LTR).
