Two days ago this Western Meadowlark kept me from being skunked at Farmington Bay WMA because there weren’t many other birds to photograph up close. It was cold enough that this meadowlark was sticky and stayed on the post while I photographed it from a mobile blind.
I screwed up a few of the images I took because I accidentally turned the dial to increase my exposure when I meant to change my aperture. I think I will be able to recover the details in most of those images but I do wish I had been paying more attention when I turned that dial. Stuff happens! 🙂
Any how I caught my mistake and was able to capture a series of the Western Meadowlark stretching its wings and this is one of those frames. I love how this shows the transparency of the primaries.
Life is good.
