After reading the other responses, considering the sun angle, and realizing you are in Florida, where the local race of Sandhill Crane, if memory serves me correctly, was called in the old literature (even before my time!)the "Little Brown Crane", I copied your 4th picture into my processor and varied the brightness and was able to duplicate nos 2 and 1 (but not 3) by simply increasing the brightness. I found the most realistic image (useableat all 4 of my settings) was obtained with a 12% increase in brightness and a similar amount of desaturation to tone down the too bright greens. So Tomcould be rightright -- a slight adjustment to number 4 could be the ticket.
