17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Close up of a Dark-rumped rosefinch

This Dark-rumped rosefinch was shot in the afternoon, light was not really good that time due to cloudy sky. Afternoon sunshine was trying to spread over nearby trees and the valley before calling it a day. To some extent, that ‘final’ light helped to get the bird’s detail.
