'Light Keeper' (composite)

This is a simple composite I put together a couple of months ago. It was in my archives forgotten about until I accidentally came across it once again.

Re: 'T. R. Pugh Memorial Park' (composite)

Thanks for sharing this well managed composite. Using photos that are composed and angled so similarly was a smart move. You actually moved the shadow with her!

At the top of the mound, in a shallow hole, the female lays one egg. The parents take turns sitting on the egg to keep it warm. I don't usu...
