American Robin

I took this photo a few weeks ago at Magee Marsh on the shore of Lake Eerie in Ohio. We were there a bit ahead of warbler season so there wasn't a huge crowd on the boardwalk, which gave me the opportunity to practice taking bird photos with a flash. I had a better beamer attachment to the flash unit. Using flash for bird photography is a bit of a challenge, which is obviously amplified with a beamer. I'm glad I had the chance to experiment in a more relaxed setting than when bird paparazzi are going crazy over warblers.
