Best on full size

With autumn upon us and winter around the corner I’m saying goodbye to my favorite birdies, the bluebirds. Caught the image of this pretty girl when the very talented Beve Brown-Clark came to visit in April of 2010. We were at a small bird sanctuary in Montgomery County, Maryland and really didn’t get many great shots. Lots of ticks, though. Ug.

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 150-500mm OS Sigma at 1/500 shutter, f/11 aperture, 450mm focal length, iso 400. A bit of tinkering in Photoshop CS4 and CapNX2, and a texture from FloraBella.
