Thanks, no those sticks are actually way in back and oof, I haven't cloned anything yet. Your the stick cloner. I'll try later but I don't expect to do very good. I do like the shot. Was down and the nesting trees for a while yesterday. This guys was across the road and the canal fishing and I spotted him in the tree hoping to be close enough to get the shot. He let me get a few then got bored and flew away.
Real nice EC and focus/detail. Looks to me like sticks where going in front of the bird and got cloned? Wouldn't take too much to fix and I would probably also try and clone out the 2 darker ones behind the neck..Just depends on how you feel about the shot how much work you want to do on it
