CommentThis pair of Leaden Flycatchers only landed on this branch for an instant and I was lucky enough to capture the interaction between these two birds. The posturing of these two birds makes the image more interesting than if they were just quietly perching on the branch. The sharp focus of both the birds (even the rictal bristles) set against a softly blurred background makes for a clean uncluttered image.
