Backlit grackle and flared sparkle.

Grackle and Sparkle 5

by michiganmike

The disc is neither the sun nor moon. I had set out this branch near a feeder when I noticed that across the lake there was a boat that had been covered with a blue tarp which had accumulated quite a bit of water. The sun was behind the subject and sparkled off the water. I lined up the shot and took several test exposures before settling on 1/1000 sec at f 8. The grackle showed up almost immediately and I got of about a half dozen shots before he left.
