I was waiting for a proper time to photograph my wood duck carvings and dove. Time has taken its toll on these ol birds. I have zero experience photographing under special light with close up and still struggle with a simple camera. Either way some post processing and some fun adjustments- here they are!

I hand painted this dove many years ago

These are great! Nice work catching the light in the eye on #1. We had some buffleheads visiting our lake this winter - I loved watching them dive. :)

Thank you Bethany. Something very calming about aquatic birds in general. Maybe Im attracted to them because I like to fly amphib planes! smile

My favorite is #1. I like the way the light shines on its body and eyes. I also like its colorfulness. I love color...if you hadn't figured that out already smile

Not close to your beauties of color; but I do thank you for your kind comments. I'm driving myself crazy with all the camera choices out there.
