A couple of days ago, Ann and I decided to check the birding at San Angelo State Park. We were hoping to catch some early immigrants arriving. Birding was fair. I say it was only fair, because I failed to get any good keeper photographs. At least, that is what I thought until I got home and took a closer look at some of my images.
One that caught my eye was this photo that I captured of a Greater Roadrunner. Photographed from about 100 feet away, it is a rather nondescript image that isn’t very impressive.
As you can see, this photo won’t win any prizes. I didn’t like the way the sun was shining on the cactus. The overall composition wasn’t great either. I decided to do some creative cropping because I really liked the colorul expression of the bird itself. Fortunately the image was sharp enough that I could really crop close without losing any quality.
So, as they say, if you get lemons, make lemonade.
Until the next time, HAPPY BIRDING!!!
