a feeding flock of birds arrived on my deck - so I put out some bird seed, scaring them away but only for a minute or two. the camera sees what I cannot, so I am intrigued by all the details. Above the photo was run through Aurora below, just photo shop. See enlargements of the faces below
eating corn we see a little pink tounge!
The picture above was process through the HDR program Aurora - below just photo shop. You can see the difference in the textures and how the program treats the highlight. I am fascinated by being able to see such detail - the windows of my house - I am looking through the windows are reflected in the eye of the bird.
A smaller bird sits on the edge of the of the action. the larger one did some chasing of the others away. There were at least 2 dozen birds in the yard coming and going around the deck.
their eyes are brown! The feet have amazing dino structure and show up red with the light.
