Lilly trotting

By esoxlucius
A huge confession.......
I loved my upload of the chick running with beak open, and I loved the composition of the chick running with beak closed.
So I took the head from one shot and put it on the other.
Cheating as far as nature photography is concerned, but well within the bounds of creative photography.
However I prefer this composite to either of my other 2 moorhen chick shots.
Sorry to the purists among us.
Forgive me.

I am quite a purist by nature, call me old school .... yes. However, I have to admit that you carried out a very solid job here Tim, splendid image!

I have no problem with manipulation, after all it's now the way you wanted it, and that must be very satisfying. You shot both pictures, then amalgamated them, and it's very well done.
