Black Bird in Blue Hour

It was after sunset and the atmosphere was entirely blue. I was about to photograph the waterfall at Stow Lake of Golden Gate Park when a tiny black bird jumped into the frame. I quickly changed the focal length and pressed the shutter before the bird walked out. I wish the bird were more toward the left of the frame but I like the silhouette effect.

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.
