Behind The Lens

Location
There isn't a great deal to tell about this photo. In fact, I didn't even step out of my room to take it. I was sitting in front of my computer, camera gear on a desk behind me. To my right was (and is right now) a window, with a view to a nearby hillside. I saw two birds out of the corner of my eye on a tree at the top of the hillside, and one made a majestic glide to the bottom of the hill before I could grab my camera. But I caught the second one which followed the same trajectory just as beautifully as few seconds later.
