Adobe Photoshop and Birds

Last night I was out at Mc Menamins Edgefield and came upon this beautiful Cedar Waxwing, it must have been no farther away than six feet. I was so excited and had my new camera in hand. The bird was collecting a small dry piece of twig I think for a nest, I watched as it flew into a dense tree.

Today I played with Adobe Photoshop 6.0, it is under $100 and not hard to use. With that said you do have to mess around and play for a bit to find all the tricks it can do. I’m still learning and having fun with it, as you can see I changed the colors drew funky flowers into the background and made the little pink berry's, I added a star to the eye and did a watercolor effect This image will be made into cards.
If you click on this picture you can really see the detail of photoshop.
