I love your photo of this beautiful Great Creasted Flycatcher. I have seen this bird quite a few times while up at Magee Marsh during spring migration. I think you managed a wonderful POV and the plumage colors are just right!!
Actually compared to most of the other flycatchers I normally see while up at the marsh, this guy is probably the largest. As you have already found out, they do seem to like the higher levels of the trees. Great job!!
I see you are experiencing the same type of skies we have here in Ohio. Many times they look white, because of all the cloud cover we get from being so close to Lake Erie.

What a beauty ...what a timeless classic indeed! Good day Ruby Sarkar. Difficult shot because of the strong back light but once again you've perfected that technique. Great natural colors fine moderate sharpness and a composition to die for .... Now check this: Can you see this thin blueish line which runs along the branch's shadows .... they call it a chromatic aberration a type of distortion which is a common problem for the lenses. Grab the "desaturate" brush with a proper size and take a walk over that line. The white background can not be affected because you can not discolor the white color further ;) Try it Ruby .... but thank you for the music :)

Very nice photo of this flycatcher in good sharpness and beautiful natural colours. Not easy with such a diffcult coloured sky in the background. Pleasing composition. I've read that they are nesting even in mailboxes.

Hi Ruby. Good shot of this guy. What I really wanted to say though, was that the sky seems a bit too white. I wonder what your "white balance" is set at? If it's set at "daylight" then maybe it should have been set at "overcast"? What do you think? Do you have that setting to change on your camera? Just wondering. Trevor
