Rare Bird Alert

A report of a Neotropical Cormorant being sighted at the main Oxbow lake late this afternoon. The bird in question was with Double-crested Cormorants so a comparative size difference was noticed. Hope it sticks around, I need this one.

“Unmasking” the beauty.

I went outside tonight to try and get some Ruby-throated Hummingbird pictures. As in years past we’ve had a male and female buzzing around sampling some of the finest hummingbird food Maineville has to offer. And I’ve not been too happy with some of my recent results, so I’ve done a little home work and screwed around with my Canon software that came with my camera, and discovered something. “Unsharp Mask” I’m not sure how it works really, however the results from tonight are better than I expected.

As you can see I have a pretty sharp image with some good detail.
