Here’s a shot I took many months ago and decided to redevelop in Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS4. Blue-winged Teals generally swim in mating pairs and it’s difficult to get a good shot of a single bird in the water. This little beauty was kind enough to swim very slowly and let me get several shots before the sun completely set.
BTW – If the rumors are correct, Canon should be announcing something big either today or tomorrow. Probably another high pixel density DSLR with more wiz-bangs, golly-gee willikers and do-hickies than any of us really need. How do I know you ask? Because I just bought and new DSLR and being Irish, Murphy follows me around like a bad rash.
