How to photograph Black Redstart
A revisited image of a Grey Phalarope that I have converter to black and white.

Todays image is of a female Banded Demoiselle. I’d noticed a number of these flitting about just on the outskirts of a shadow of a tree catching midges. Knowing that if I exposed one of these demoiselles in the sunlight against the shadows, the background would go very dark, resulting in this striking image. It was a matter of putting the wellies on and waiting next to a suitable perch. 🙂
