Part 2 - Mockingbird singing by the west fence - late morning
Part 3 - Mockingbird in mesquite - early afternoon
Friday afternoon I heard a mockingbird singing in the mesquite tree outside my study window. There were several other birds singing and it echoed their songs. The tree was backlit and silhouetted by the almost blinding southwest sun but I managed to spot the bird. It was challenging trying to photograph it as it flew through the tree, lighting on a branch to sing a song and then flying to another vantage point.
The first photo in Part 3 is a full-size untouched photo. I cropped the other four and then did some histogram adjustments. My next indoor assignment for myself is to learn about dodging and burning so I can alter areas surrounding the subjects of interest.
