Comment"Junior, how many times do I have to tell you that THIS IS MY PERCH." I have chosen this image for the action involved and the clarity of the two birds, the perched one appearing to be an immature bird intruding on the adult's preferred resting spot. The muted background accentuates the detail on the birds.
EquipmentCanon R5 and Canon 100-400 II lens with 1.4x extender at 560 mm, 1/1600, f8, ISO 1000, handheld. Processed using Photoshop with Neat Image noise reduction.
