Scott says…

My fam­ily and I vis­ited Cleve­land Metroparks Zoo in the US state of Ohio, where I no­ticed this vi­brant flamingo. As soon as it hid its beak in its plumage, I knew that I had a great op­por­tu­nity for an in­ter­est­ing shot. Get­ting per­fect fo­cus and even light­ing across your sub­ject is a chal­lenge with any close-up im­age. I fo­cused on the flamingo’s eye, get­ting it sharp with any blur fall­ing on its feath­ers and turn­ing them soft, and ended up with the best photo I’ve ever taken.­tfwein­traub Equip­ment Set­tings Nikon D5100, Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6, ISO 320, f/5.6, 1/400 sec
