Rear Window

4b3a1996

This week’s photo, taken February 3, 2017 at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline, WA, features the backsides of 2 GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROWS.

We are so conditioned as photographers to aim our cameras at the front of birds and other living things, yet a rear point of view sometimes displays details and patterns that otherwise would be hidden.

Don’t think for a moment that my goal that morning was to photograph birds from the back. Often, we just have to accept what we get. Occasionally, what we get is better than we originally thought.

    Your point would be more obviously made if you had a couple of Yellow-rumped Warblers.
