Wistful Grackle by Fail-Avenger Wistful Grackle by Fail-Avenger
Female grackle scouting out some shrimp bait on the Flagler Beach pier. I love these birds, they're so expressive. They're almost unafraid of humans because of all the fishermen.

F 8
Speed 1/320
ISO 200
0 step exposure
Length 300 mm

Thanks! I miss shooting the birds at the beach. You can get a lot closer to those than the skittish ones around here.

I like the shine in its eyes and how they look to the camera like there is nothing to bother about.

Thank you! Yeah, they're not shy at all in that setting. Anywhere else besides a beach I find it more difficult to get close.
