15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Bird In Prayer
This picture is unedited in any way... As the sun was setting, I saw this fellow sitting in the distance in the weeds... He would look up once in awhile, looking somewhat forlorn, but mostly his head was bent as if prayer. Because of the angle of the sun, and the fact that I was using a 24-2000mm VR zoom lens, the Nikon auto-adjusted the photo like this in overcompensating for the angle being in direct, though low, sunlight. I like to think that God was just showing me something, a thousand things come to mind, but I suppose what it means is up to those who view it.
