Wing Up

Uploaded: May 15, 2019 07:29:23 | Entered: May 15, 2019 07:29:41


I like how this guy was flapping his wings around. Having the one wing back behind his head I thought was a nice addition. Shot through the window using Canon 7D II, Canon 100-400 mm L lens at 400 mm. Settings f8, 1/800, ISO 400.
