Wow! What an awesome shot. The back light is gorgeous combined with a well exposed front light. Were you standing in front of a white wall or did you have a flash going? Either way, excellent! :D

Thanks mate.

I always use flash on birds if I can :)

Just a fabulous image. I really appreciate the thought that went into this. Get the exposure right is one thing, but also the timing to make a good composition and the birds wing spread like with the sun in just the right spot. :thumbup:

Wow! Nice shot! I'm going to have to consider using my flash more often after seeing this one.

I've been telling people for years to use their flashes for birds and wildlife ... works for me ;)

You say you used a flash. How far away was the bird. I would have thought it would have been outside of flash range.

I honestly couldn't tell you how far the bird was exactly but my flash will hit 20m or more depending on the settings such as ISO.
