This is the same Flicker as yesterday's post leaving the nest.  Showing this image as some wispy clouds were overhead which greatly reduced contrast.  To each his own as far as the type of light they prefer.  Probably won't show future images of this nest site until the young are showing themselves at the nest hole.

Remarkable difference in the lighting, Warren. The softer light suits this imv, and shows more detail in the Flicker and the habitat. Nicely done.
Make your life spectacular!

I like the end result on this one much more, the overcast works perfectly no burned colours and don't have to worry about shadows effect, clouds are like a filter and you were able to get a catch light in the eye, good stuff WARREN.

Appreciate your comments, Peter.  I'm still torn between the two images, but there's no accounting for taste, lol. That's why I posted them both.  I kind of like the sharp edges of the more contrasty image but certainly like the way the background looks in the softer image.  Unfortunately, nature is going to to be the final arbiter as to what images will be possible as the nest (hopefully) progresses. I don't have a strong feeling either way so I'll be happy with either look as long as the nest is successful.

Neat takeoff pose and angle, I look forward to seeing more of it, especially when the chicks show up.

I see what you mean about the softer light in this one, Warren - but I love the perfect pose (for my tastes) in your first image, so that is definitely my favourite of the two!

I like the pose in the first one better as well. The light, as harsh as it is in the first one, seems to work because of the luminescence of the wings. Again there's no right or wrong answer, it's all about your individual taste.
