Because the rail came up so close I was able to fill the frame...too much so in some cases. I read recently that one should keep the eye in focus and the rest of the photo will take care of itself. Well, you can see that I was working really hard to keep that eye the center of my focus, but because of that I ended up cutting off part of the bird with my shot. Still, I am very happy with the detail in the photographs of this Virginia Rail. They make for a good plumage and coloration study of this fun little bird.
