17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Reverence to the Sun

One late afternoon I decided to walk my camera to look for possible points of an owl. However, at the point where I imagine finding the owl there was this couple of Streamer-tailed Tyrant (Marsh Shears) that were on a branch against the sun. So I had the idea of photographing the silhouette of the birds with the sun in the background. In the picture the birds are making their traditional display.
