the Cleaning Lady & Anomaly - (not for the squeamish)

Post by minniev » Wed Mar 14, 2018 10:31 pm

I found a dozen buzzards working hard on this deer carcass at the fishing pier early morning. Is it too gross for public viewing?

Second question: what on earth is the round thing behind her? It looks like a processing artifact but this is SOOC, and it is in all the shots I took of her. It looks like a portal to another world or something. (There were supposed to be some solar flares today but not in Mississippi)

No to your first.....not sure what you have going on here, all the background grass or twigs look transparent and it almost seem like a vignette on the right side.....reminds me almost of a film advance issue with double exposure..

On the right there was/is a shadow from the pier itself and some trees, so that I recognize. But the circle is odd. It is in every one of the images from this angle, but not any of the other photos with the same lens in the same spot.

No not to gross. Its life. I kind of like how the background is. It makes the buzzard stand out.

Thank you.

I once got in a bunch of trouble on a different forum for posting a photo of buzzards, which a respondent said was frivolous and made a mockery of the forum. I actually like buzzards, and am grateful for the work they do, which isn't work many of us would want.

Nature is a beautiful thing and everything has its part. Buzzards are beautiful in their own way! S-

I agree. I love buzzards. In some cultures they are highly honored for their work. They are no more unattractive than the other birds with wattled chins, it is their jobs we de-value them for.
