I haven’t been doing as many of these as usual lately. There are three reasons for that: 1) Properly removing the background requires a lot of wrist and elbow motion, and if I do too much of it, my right arm aches; 2) I’ve done enough of these now that I only want to spend time on photos that offer a challenge. I can’t always tell if something will work until I’m well into the process; 3) I’m writing again, and there’s only so much time in the day. I really want to finish this book, so right now my priorities are work first, then writing, then art.

Fall is right around the corner. I can’t believe it’s September already, but after the summer we’ve had, maybe that’s a good thing. 

Here are a couple of ducklings, floating on the canal. 

A white egret, landing on the water. Almost looks like he’s walking on it, doesn’t it? 

I think this is a Cooper’s hawk. At first I thought it was a red-shouldered, but everything didn’t line up. That red eye! 

Another one of my experiments. I didn’t want do the usual (see first paragraph), so I tried something new. I love the 3D effect with the branches, but I’m not so sure about the overall effect. 

Little blue heron and a turtle, ignoring each other. I saw them in a nearby canal. I love the different blues and textures in this one.

That’s it for now! See you next time.
