On Friday it looked like rain, so we decided to do a little exploring in Brooklyn and not stray too far from the car. The first stop was Owl’s Head Park in Brooklyn. Not too many birds except for this beautiful American Robin just waiting to have its picture took.
No worry about awkward shadows on this overcast day – just soft transitions on the Robin red breast. By moving just a couple of feet around the Robin, I was able to capture a lovely background and still get a good angle.
After this we pulled off at a rest stop just past the Verrazano Bridge where I was happy to be able to continue my practice of shooting Gulls in flight. Perhaps that will be tomorrow’s bird of the day.
