Recently, I started using 500.px as a photo gallery/portfolio. This image of a Western Meadowlark is one of my first offerings there. It was taken the other day on my drive home from work along Ione-Michigan Bar Road where there are always a lot of Meadowlarks and Kingbirds. I like to drive the 10-mile long road with my windows down in the spring and summer listening to the songs of these birds. When the road is clear I’ll stop and make an image. Usually, the birds take off before I can get a decent shot.
Camera: Canon EOS 30D, Lens: EF 100-300 @ 300mm, Shutter Speed: 1/500 sec., Aperture: f/13, ISO: 400.
Let me know what you think about this shot in the comments below. Thanks.
