20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Bejeweled Meadowhawk

While visiting one of my favorite places, Finzel Swamp, I was able to get close enough to an Autumn Meadowhawk to capture the golden details sparkling with the sunlight. I used a wide aperture to isolate the jewel-adorned wing tips. I love how the macro lens combined with shifting sunlight exposes details in a fluid way.
