Male Anhinga

Just a typical pose of an Anhinga drying its feathers before taking another swim underwater.

Technical Details

Is this a composite: Yes
D810, 200-500 @300mm, f/7.1, 1/1250, ISO 400

Boring BG so I inserted a new sky and gave it a bit of a gaussian blur to match the DoF of the original shot. A bit of color range toning and color grading to up the browns in the body feathers.

Hi Chris
What did the original key look like? The Anhinga has nice shadow detail and coloring, but the feet and branch look a little funny. I like the overall framing.
