CommentA group of four birds had crept out of the shadows to enjoy the last rays of sunset.I took the image without a flash with just enough light touching the bird to keep the ISO down. All of the birds stood motionless in the shadows trying to pretend I was not there.I love the detail in this birds eye and was in two minds about editing the tiny white down feather on the tip of the bill. I chose to keep it.
