American Robin

On a rainy day, as we were ambling through Peace Valley park I came across this Robin that had hopped down from a branch above to get a drink from a shallow puddle. In this photo it looks like its staring at it’s reflection.

D7200, Nikkor 200-500mm | 1/800, f/5.6 @ ISO 3200

Although a good photo, I’m not quite satfisfied with it. On the technical front, I should’ve dropped the shutter speed down to around 1/320 or 1/400 and gotten a lower ISO. Compositionally too something is missing – the image isn’t pleasing to my eyes. I’ll probably be returning to this photo for experimenting with some more edits.
