Yesterday at Central Winds I had the opportunity to photograph a female American Redstart. She was in under a dense canopy of trees before it was fully light, so these photographs were taken at 3200 ISO. This just creates a lot of work for me in my computer, but a couple of these I thought were clean enough to show. One day, just one day, I’d like for this bird to pose for me like this where there’s some good lighting.
