As soon as I saw this image in the LCD screen on my Pentax *ist DS I knew I had a great shot. My only hope was that it would be in focus as it was a big ask to get the shot in focus as the bird flew in. After all, I could hardly ask it to hold the position or go back and do it again!

All the shot needed was some cropping and a little contrast enhancement. It’s one of those photos that keeps you coming back and taking more photos.

It’s a photo I’m proud to add to my Helen Bradley – Photography collection.
