I have been wandering through my LR catalog and found a couple trumpeter swans I shot in February 2017 that I have edited recently. I also have a blackbird I captured just the other day, and a finch from 5 years ago

    amazing clarity Jim! Great shots! For second shot, I would consider cropping out the dark band in bokeh all together...not needed in my view and distracting right now. cheers!

    Thank you Taz, I briefly thought about doing that and then promptly forgot it. Here is a revised version, maybe a bit better - certainly the dark blob at the bottom is gone. I also darkened the bright spot in the upper half of the frame - the background of this image, as shot, left a great deal to be desired. But I liked the dripping water droplet
