If you wish, it might come true!
No sooner did I hope “maybe next time?” Carson might pose for a full portrait session, then up he flew to a nearby perch the very next day. Close enough to fill almost half the frame. Braving my huge telephoto for a whole six seconds, pausing just long enough in each position for me to fire off a fully focused shot at a relatively low ISO.
Personally I love his glaring expression in portrait #2, below. Which is YOUR favorite? Please zoom in to check out his beautiful plumage, then let me know your choice in a comment. THANKS!
