I'm sure everyone has some of these. Just when you're sure you're going to get that really good shot...lighting is right, distance is perfect, focus is great, subject is cooperative, etc..... SOMETHING seems to happen!!! Usually, no explaination is needed as the photo tells it all.

Without knowing where to look, I'd never have spotted the edit - and I'm horribly particular about such things.

I can see it sticking out like a sore thumb, but that's probably because I'm the one that did it. I'm a super perfectionist with my editing work. (One reason my friends love using me, but I drive myself batty doing it.)

At least you were able to get a couple pictures. I would have been happy with a blur when we saw this for the first time last week. :)

I was looking at an osprey nest when this Great Blue Heron flew overhead and landed in a nearby tree. I got a couple of good shots when it decided to take off. Unfortunately, he was faster than I was :(
