Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 23

Hello Feathered Friends Lovers,

I hope you all are well and safe. Are you ready for another round of Show Me A Photo Contest #SMAP in short? After the sweet, cute fledglings you have presented this week I decided to challenge you with


Truth to be told, the pictures I chose to show you are basically failure. I am having bunch of them where the backround is white to greyish and the bird is just black. Sometimes even with the blue sky as backround it doesn't look all right. When I lift the shadows it turned even worse. I guess I got wrong settings and if anyone can help me how to improve this, I will be very grateful.
So, why not to use this as an advantage I thought and make a new theme for the contest.

This one I called Samurai Jack. It seems like the bird is holding the stick like a sword. Pretty funny, don't you think?

Same bird as its normal self with the stick in its beak.

Another one is the starling, singing on a small brunch, eye level, no leaves or other branches in front, just a pefect spot for a photo and again I got it wrong. So here is another bird's silhouette.


Now is your turn and I am excited what your entries will be. Be creative, show me your photo of a bird, following these rules:

  • The photo must be your own.
  • Post in the community Feathered Friends
  • You may add more photos, but you should state which one is your entry, otherwise the first will be taken into account.
  • Tell us something about your photo/s. Use at least 100 words to describe your photo/s.
  • Your photo must follow the weekly theme, which will be announced each Sunday.
  • Please put the link of your entry in the commment section of the contest post here.
  • Put in the title of your post that this is an entry for the contest. (Optional)
  • Use #smap as a tag.

Last, but not least - have fun!
