Two more from SD

We headed over to Sylvan Lake (closing scene locale from Nat’l Treasure 2) to photograph some waterfowl. In working a Red-winged Blackbird busily building a nest (where the sun didn’t shine), I looked up and noticed this kinda cool reflection scene. It was finished using Nik’s Tonal Contrast. Always a good reason to carry a second body when working with the long lens.

While working the Upland Sandpiper, we were faked out when we glassed down the fence row in the distance and saw a brown bird that once we snug up upon it, discovered it was a Western Meadowlark. Well, couldn’t let a great background and fullframe subject go to waist!
