At least once every year I like to spend a day photographing the birds at my parent's feeder using flashes. It is by no means a natural look but it sure can make for some very dramatic photographs when I dial things in just right. This was one of only a few Common Grackles to land at the feeder all day but it was a perfect subject for the lighting. I knew as soon as I saw it on the back of the camera that I had something different with this bird. Basically an outline of its body with that bright yellow eye standing out. This was sot with a 3 flash setup, 2 behind the branch and off to each side and 1 flash in the front on the left just for a slight touch of fill (helps the eyes show up). I had the added bonus of a very light rain all day long which is what all the white specs in the air are. Taken in my parent's back yard in southern New Jersey.
