Tree Camouflage | Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker | New York
There are so many different ways to photograph birds.
Every photo can easily have a unique look.
Something you may love or something you may not really like.
I find this photo interesting with the big contrast between light and dark areas.
One thing I am not sure of is if I like how much the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker blends in with the tree it is clinging to.
It is a very accurate depiction of the way the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker’s feather pattern makes it look in the wild.
But usually in a photo the goal is to make the subject stand out.
In this photo the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker does not really stand out.
Love it or hate it? Let me know in the comments.
Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal Length 420mm. ISO 1000. 1/1250 sec. f/5.6.
