It was too dark under the trees but then this black phoebe sat on a pedestal of a light pole where some sun rays were falling directly on it and I was able to take 2 shots. The cement pedestal is all blown out.



Lucky I shot in RAW and I was able to expose the pedestal correctly but I still need to learn how to merge 2 shots in PS.

Yes, this picture is very nice. Very good shot bobbyz and I would like to see you post the fully post-processed picture when you are finished with it.

I've never seen one of these either as I hardly ever get down to the southwestern area of the US. Supposedly they are casual visitors to western Oregon where I am but obviously not casual enough for me to get a glimpse...

Nice clear shot with good detail. That is one small bird.

Very nice work to gets such detail on that dark bird. Something have to give exposure wise with that light colored rock. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful little bird...with a huge head compared to it's body. I think I've seen some photos of this in books but not quite as detailed as the one you've taken here bobby. Great photo, even with the blown out parts. You got the bird, and that's the main thing. And the background color is special. Your combo of cam and lens continues to impress.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

These birds will fly from there pirch, catch some insects in flight and come back to the same perch. So it is easier totake their shots.

Here is one of the flight shots.
