Taken on August 6 and 7th, the birds were growing up incredibly fast. Due to the rain I missed their fledging, what shots I did get showed their growth in and out of the nest. When I returned after the rains even the nest was gone. I will admit that these were hard to process and I used luminosity masks to darken the over-lit background and brighten the birds. Leaves kept getting between the birds and the camera and the only clean background I got was when the birds moved out of the nest. Seeing these birds grow up was amazing and being able to get semi-decent shots wonderful.
