_MG_7018 I love rainy days...for bird shooting!

Imagine that I didn't have to shoot this through a double paned tinted window. Probably could have gotten away with ISO 800! Actually, the noise wasn't too bad - and was taken care of with Adobe Camera Raw 7 in Photoshop's CS6 beta.
I believe feather colors are especially beautiful on a dull day because there is no reflection of the sun on the feathers, and the true color can come through. I did not as all enhance on the color on this image - that brilliant red is the way it looked in the raw image.

Rainy or cloudy days are great for most any kind of shots. Considering double paned and tinted glass you were shooting through this is very good.
