This gallery contains 2 photos. With a sufficiently bright ambient background, even a (moderately) digitally-zoomed photo doesn’t suffer from noise, and ISO / Flash / Exposure don’t need adjustment. Shot in Shutter Priority mode. The Golden-Crowned Sparrow roosting in the laurel hedge thinks that I can’t see him.
And here’s the realization that I can: he stares straight at the camera lens, and resigns himself to being under digital scrutiny. Not for much longer, but at least he grants me ten more seconds to photograph him having a not-so-private moment.
