I had walked out on a old public dock that seems to have been taken over by the birds and as I came back inland I caught a merganser but you can see he was watching me as well ... Softened is the only enhancement as well cropped...

Just a little bit out of focus but nice circled waves.

Original so you can see it when I hit the modes on the camera this is what it does I have no control over what that cam does with a button selection

Almost all editors will work. This is Picasa 3. It's free and easy.
Hope you get better!

It's a female Hooded Merganser - Not very common. And IMO the cutest duck in the world...

Thanks to you all I am so much better than I was way back in Oct to the start of Jan this year I was really hurting my arm was feeling as if a sludge hammer had hit it a few times...and with how doctors can be and the issue with drugs I was having a hard time trying to kill the pain finally a few trips to the emergency really made them all see I was hurting bad.. I still got the straight talk that tyl #3 with codeine and even vicadin can be addicting but hey when you are in pain you got to have it ...I am not that way I only do when I need to and that was one of the times...Having two big teenagers ram into my Back while I was sleeping was not fun especially when one of their elbows went right in to the spinal column.
