Nature! What a magnificent flourish of regal attire this flycatcher displays in its crest, while it engages in its perhaps not quite so regal lifestyle of catching flies.
This photo would have benefited from a higher aperture setting to give it a greater depth of field, to keep the bird's beak and the perimeter of the crest in sharper focus. The important details such as the eyes and most of the crest are perfectly in focus.
A splendid photo of a splendid creature!
Oh what a beautiful shot. I would loved to have seen the whole bird though for interest sake as I really love birds and have worked with birds and wildlife at a rehab centre for most of my life.
