The red on the bird's wings wasn't added on during processing. That's the light being reflected off the feeder.

Okay you are so cheating at the bird photography. So my records show you have a pet gray heron, hummingbird... hee hee. Great shot. I just saw one in my yard for the first time!

Someone needs to invent more adjectives to describe this shot. Amazing is good, but doesn't quite express how great this shot really is.

Deb said...

An iridescent beauty. And you knew we'd ask if you achieved that stained glass effect through processing trickery, didn't you? :-)
