Avian Portraits: A New Collection

Sometimes I find myself able to get close enough to birds to fill the frame without being able to fit the whole bird in the shot. Rather than fight it, I go with the flow and shoot portraits! I’ll be adding new portraits of captive and wild birds to this collection as I encounter co-operative subjects.
