A Blashford Lapwing

By Trev_B
I had an hour or so to kill yesterday so I took a short drive out to Blashford Lakes to see what was about. Here is a Lapwing tap dancing in front of the hideWink

V2 is a rework after Richards very correct comment, a note to me "Be careful when using the Sharpening Mask in Camera Raw" BlushBlush I'ts always good to learn good or bad use of the PS tools.... and this was a bad use... hay ho forever forwardGrin

Thanks for your very kind votes and comments over the past few days... always really nice to receive.

He certainly looks to be dancing Trev.
There seem to be overspill of some dodging around the birds outline, might be worth another look at

Trust you to see that RichardWinkWink

I noticed after the upload, but after comments came along, I didn't need to Dodge the original but there was some sharpening applied so it could have come from that.... I'll take another look...
