Guarded (Two Photographs)

No doubt on first glance you will miss the female wood duck standing beside the male. My best efforts to enhance her outline do not do her justice. There are many admonitions against busy photographs, have a look at Cartier-Bresson’s work; often there is much more going on than first meets the eye in many of his photographs. In his photograph of a man leaping over the puddle there is a very similar poster in the background. Not being Cartier-Bresson, I wish the female had not been there, the photo would be cleaner. The title speaks to the female bird being guarded from the melee around her and to my own thoughts about the issue of busy photographs. In the second photograph you can see the female more clearly, I still prefer the first shot.
