CommentThe number and species of birds in Black Mountain Nature Reserve have been hit hard by the Drought and a smashing hailstorm which stripped the trees of most of their leaves. Grey Fantails appear to be moving through. I spent much time with this image trying to apply the crop tool in a satisfying fashion. Apart from presenting the bird and allowing it gaze into substantial picture space, I concentrated on the negative spaces and the arrangement of the sticks to try and generate a pleasing image.
(This image was captured consistent with the current ACT regulations on isolation.)
