Great-spotted Cuckoo

Great-spotted Cuckoo is normally quite a distant and shy bird to photograph. This shot of an adult bird was taken from the car window at about 25 yards and was quite relaxed. The yellowish background is the out of focus field of cornflowers.

EXIF Detail: Aperture priority. F/10. Shutter: 1/250s. ISO 250. Exposure +0.7EV. Centre weighted Metering.

  1. I can't begin to tell you how much I love how you used the cornflowers as a cavas for the cuckoo. The colors work so well in the image!
