CEDAR WAXWING (SMUGMUG STYLE ;-))
I decided to frame this image in the style of so many of your stunning images.. I think I finally "get" the idea in Elements on how you can layer these colors etc...Smugmug images have inspired me to try this method as well as the clear frames. I also like this picture without a frame:
The birds were here only briefly... only two of them so this was the fullest I could see him. Of course they were eating the Serviceberries on the front side of the tree not where I was. Speaking of my location...LOL, I thought I heard the Cedar WaxWings in the area, so I took out the screen door, donned my camo jacket, mounted my new 80-400 VR lens first to the camera, then to the tripod..pressed my eye to the viewfinder... and waited. Two clicks is all I got, but that's 2 more than I have been able to capture so far!
My son just landed in Philly..home on vacation from Afghanistan...so I'll be back full time starting next week. Have a great week everyone!
