I had to do a lot of post processing from the RAW file. The light wasn't the best and I was using my Sigma 18-250 at 250 which tends to be a little soft. These are good examples of how processing RAW files can make a picture look better. The JPGs from the camera aren't as nice.

Very nice Clint. I have been trying to get a shot of one of these guys forever but never can get close.

There is a pair that live in the woods nearby. Every now and then they will pay us a visit.

Saly I use Zoner Photo Studio 13 and Elements 9.

Banksy - the land of Oz has lots of fascinating creatures also.

JJ - they are shy - my window has a great view of the backyard. That's the only way I could get the shot.
