Spent an afternoon at Hagerman Wildlife Refuge near Sherman, TX and got these shots. All were taken handheld out the open car window. I was sometimes able to rest the lens on the window, sometimes not.
Any comments, edits or suggestions (especially using Lightroom) are most welcome.
#1 Not sure what kind of duck this is.
#2 Great Blue Heron. I didn't quite nail the focus on the head. Auto Focus through all the grass was iffy so I was manually tweaking the focus but he was moving and I was handholding. Excuses, excuses...
#3 Nine Banded Armadillo (official State mammal of Texas )
#4 Very proud of this one. I did have to take it back to Aperture to clone an out of focus twig that was sticking into the frame below the bird because I just couldn't get it in Lightroom. I find the Aperture cloning brush to be much more versatile but need to find a tutorial on the Lightroom brush. Maybe I'm just not using it right.
