Picture of the Day - "Out Of The Shadows" - July 23, 2017

Today after work, we stopped at a local pond to see if there was anything interesting. We saw a great blue heron and some ducks as well as a few more species. I decided to go with this picture of a female Common Yellowthroat as I liked the way the light and shadows fell on her and the way the sun was creating a catch light in her eye. This shot was taken just as she came out to investigate us from under the leaves :)

Taken with Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless Digital Camera with Sigma MC-ll Converter (EF Mount to Sony E), & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens with Canon 1.4x iii teleconverter @ 560mm / f8 / 1/1600 secs / ISO 6400 / -1/3 exposure compensation.

Feel free to share :)
