This is one was taken the day I went to the duck pond and was taking “feeding frenzy” photos. This bird was all by itself until I started throwing bird seed into the water, what surprised me most was s/he never left this rock. I liked the golden reflection from the bare trees with blue sky in the water. I did use the “crayon wide” preset in fractalius to give the water a bit more texture.
