    Default Greater Prairie-Chicken

    Same backstory as yesterday's shot, only later in the morning.

    Cheated and added a bit of canvas below. I wasn't gonna let this action pose get away!

    Canon 600mm f/4 IS II + 1.4x III on EOS R5
    1/3200 at f/7.1, ISO 1000
    Processed in PS (to add canvas), Topaz (for NR) and LR CC (everything else)

    This is absolutely stunning. Great light and colors. The spread wings, stretched out legs and open mouth are just perfect! The processing also spot on!

    looks great, nice warm light, and the open beak adds a touch of behavior. I like the two-tone BG too, the boundary has cleared the bird's head and doesn't distract.

    Very nice indeed, and the canvas extension was a good call. Sharp, great colours. Very productive outing!
