    I appreciate it.
  9. Very nice shots, Rathika! You sound like me: anxious for the migratory birds to arrive and start courting, nesting and breeding. Can't wait!!

    Thank you backdoctor for looking.
  14. Rathika, very nice, I really like the Owl as well. The only thing I would try to do with the owl might be to play a bit with the Shadows/Highlights in Photoshop to see if I could separate the bird just a bit more from the log. But not too much, you want to keep it natural. Too bad the bird would not open it's eyes for you, that would have been equally as sweet.


    ps. To anyone who has not yet visited Rathika's site, go look, the Painted Stork is just amazing, certainly something we don't see around here....
