An Eastern Kingbird ready to take flight against a beautiful sky
This kingbird landed on a tree behind me (as I was taking photos of an egret). I quickly turned around, adjusted my settings and fired off a few shots of this beauty. This one captures the detail in the wings and the fan in his tail feathers. I loved the backlit sky that compliments his gray and white coloration.
