Weaver Bird
Lens: HD PENTAX-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8 ED DC AW Camera: PENTAX K-3 Photo Location: Rain Forest Exhibit Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F2.8 

I caught this image of a bird overhead as it and its companions were flying around building hanging nests inside the Rain Forest Exhibit at the Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center. it paused for only a few seconds

the way I captured the feathers particularly catches my eye

cropped and pp using windows 10

I agree, the feathers reveal a very interesting pattern! However, I don't think the remainder of the composition really places an emphasis on this as the focal point, partially due to the distractions around the beak. Might work better with some of the bottom of the frame cropped away. Also, more clarify could really bring this photo to life.

like this ??

more cropped as you suggested, more " clarified "

obviously I am just learning pp

don't know how to remove the " distracting " greenry on the upper right or jutting up between the lens and the bird

the bird was about 15 feet above me by the way
