Close. A photo of the bump-out windows on our neighbor's house shot through screens after a rain. Here is the original. I cropped out the right side. Matt

This is my favorite egret of the season. He has a perfectly lovely green mask on his beak, but he hasn't found a mate. I think it is because of his bedraggled tail. He had spent much time alone beneath the dam last week, and since he and the other few stragglers could not get on their perches, they were balancing on the sloping concrete pillars. Confined to a small area, they made a bigger mess than usual. Since I don't clone out bird poop, and this was too much poop to make a decent image with, I used a cupful of Topaz to imagine my lonely egret as a frustrated feathered Jackson Pollack.

Great light. Great composition. Great Jackson Pollock homage. Feel very sorry for this poor dam nerdy bird. Having a bedraggled tail ought not to keep an otherwise good bird down! (N)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I do have fun with these danged birds. Thanks Chuck. Maybe he will find an artistic lady to hang out with.
