I had to climb a little, to get this bird inside the little sunspot on this cold day in May. And then I had to wait until his buddy flew away. He was sitting a little further up and had the dark cloudy sky as background. Even though the distance between the bird and myself was quite far, I decided to use the flash, gambling that I might get a glimpse of his eye. And I did.
Focal length 300
I used my wifes camera for this shot, a Canon 450D
