Well, it has been very dull and rainy around here lately and I haven't gotten any decent bird photos. The one above of the male Cardinal was so dark I lightened it up, but then it got very grainy. I decided to add even more grain for an 'artsy' look. I think I made it worse by trying but never mind.
Third and last try and I guess it is back to the drawing board.
I am sharing with the following memes as they become available, with thanks to Anni, and Stewart for hosting.
