Black Bird / by Conor Cunningham

Sometimes you snap an image and it turns out a lot better than expected. I snapped this in the late evening in and I thought nothing more of it until I got home. Getting it into Lightroom, I was surprised by the composition and how the back lighting made the silhouette of the bird really stand out. The sunlight also made the wee yellow flowers pop out which added a nice touch. The bird is a common black bird, or svart tross in Norwegian.
