Accidentally captured at 1/30 sec, as I thought my shutter was set to 1/300 sec. The cardinal apparently flinched at my fill flash and this wing effect was captured. Submitting to this month's theme.

Exif: FNumber: 5.6, ExposureBiasValue: 0/2, ExposureTime: 1.66666666666667E-02, Flash: flash fired, ISO: 200, WhiteBalance: auto white balance

I agree, perfect shot for the monthy theme! Sometimes the photos we get by accident end up being the most interesting! #2854960

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
