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.
