CommentCommon Noddy or more appropriately called Brown Noddy by some authorities. This is a species that I have struggled to faithfully render. There is a strong temptation to raise the brightness of the shadows but the birds have a dark brown plumage and the result is a rendering with an unnatural lighter shade of brown. In this image I have left the brown as dark as I dare.
