I don't know why, but I usually find wood thrushes up in trees, not on the ground. Maybe its the time of the year? Either way, they are supposed to be fairly hard to get pictures of (from what I've read) but I've had good luck. This is one of the better ones, with the head caught in the sunlight producing that nice catch light.

camera: 10D [email protected], 1/200, f5.6, 550EX +Better Beamer, tripod

Photoshop: RAW convert + WB fix, crop, lab sharpen. Needed nothing else!

very nice!! great pose and composition, exposure, the works....

it is a shame there are some out of focus branches....they don't distract....but detract a tiny bit...just because of some lost sharpness there...but other than that.....beautiful work eric!!

i've only seen one other picture of a wood thrush....and it was checklg's shot...and that one was one the ground

Man, Eric, you are really focusing on composition. This is super! What else can I say! Your light and shadow is amazing, and how you have set your contrast is nothing less than miraculous. You have put a whole pile of thought into this shot and it shows!
