Louisiana Mockingbird

To continue what has become bird week, here are a couple of a Mockingbird I shot. Not the best side but when he turned to look at me I was able to get some nice head and tail shots.

Out catching this guy on a cloudy day. Still trying to figure out which type of hawk he/she is.

Some Artwork

Spent a few hours on this one. I have been learning some new skills and how to use Corel Painter. Between youtube and lots of use of ctrl z(undo), I think it turned out pretty nice. Painting of the Grand-dog, Bravo.

Christmas Lights

These pictures can be very challenging to get. I have to push the ISO up as much as I dare and still try to keep the noise as low as possible. Sometimes they come out better than expected.
