"Marshland Melody"

This is an image of my latest piece, "Marshland Melody". I actually finished this a few weeks ago but was so busy that I didn't have time for any in progress shots.

I got the shot at Kensington Metropark when I went out one morning to get pictures of the herons at the rookery. A deer caught my eye at the edge of the marsh, and as I was trying to get some pics of her, I noticed all of the red-winged blackbirds on the cattails right in front of me. I have wanted to do one of these for quite a while, so I swung the camera around and focused on this fellow, who was several hundred feet away. I saw him start to puff up, and got one shot just as he was bellowing his konkaree. You've gotta love good timing!
