Birds of the castle|
This is at the castle in Manzanares in Spain.
These birds were roosting on a small tree that was growing out of the side of the castle. There were similar trees on the other sides of the castle as well, and the birds seemed to take turns, moving around to the different trees in some sort of rotation.
This particular tree, with the sun behind it, looked like the best angle. Unfortunately, the birds seemed to be hanging out on the other side of the castle. So I waited, and waited, and waited, for almost an hour, until the birds arrived at this perch.
And this was the reward for my patience. A lone bird caught in flight, lit from behind by the sun.
