Probably ... worked from a small jpg, not the raw. Cleaned it up a bit, good catch.
This one was a bit surprising to me. In person, it looked dull, boring, drab, ugly, dirty gray, black. Opened up the file and saw those patterns and the light playing off them ... yum, candy.
Many times we are "disappointed" by the mismatch bewteen our eye/brain accomodation and what the camera shows us ... this one was the opposite. I'm particularly intrigued by the warm sidelighting and how the areas mixed with overhead sky light rendered such neutral silvery tones. The birds feathers aren't any different color ... just simply the differing light reflecting off them. NOTE: See the blue (left of the beak) picking up the overhead sky only
I'll have to try and do this one justice from the raw (likely neutralizing the blue patch).
