This image shows a flying bird, wings outstretched, in Varenna, Italy.

Varenna is a charming village on the eastern shore of Lake Como. It comprises picturesque lanes and fisherman's houses but I wanted to avoid the clichéd shot. While walking through one of the lanes, I came across this bird flying through a shaft of sunlight. The bird seemed to be playing with the light.

The bird was too fast for me to rely on my camera's autofocus so I prefocussed my lens and set the camera to its fastest shutter speed. I waited for the bird to fly through the light once more and luckily I managed to get my timing exactly right. This was fortunate because the bird then disappeared as quickly as it had arrived.
