RWB in swamp

Not a lot happening in the swamp yesterday. I did catch this blackbird leaving a cattail.

Good catch! I notice a halo around the bird. Did you, perchance, use "local contrast" on the image? Reason I ask is because I had a couple of grackle shots like that and thought it might be "local contrast" settings.

Not sure what local contrast is Gary, I did PP it some and probably overdid something. Or maybe our birds are just very spiritual : ) I did use shadow adjustment as it was a little dark, that may have caused it.

Good shot Eric. They are difficult to get a good shot of them flying.

I haven't been able to get any decent shot of them in flight, just a few shots of them resting on the reeds in the wetlands, so I appreciate your capture.
