Firstly, the four photos that follow have only had a border added & a title. Only basic editing has been used. NO photo layering or special effects have been utilized.
It often occurs to me when photographing wildlife that Nature does indeed paint her own canvas. She adds just the right light and colours and creates the most incredible artwork. Sometimes the subjects may be common sightings (the Black Capped Chickadee & the Yellow Warbler) or they may be somewhat uncommon for the area, in this case, Calgary, Alberta, CA (such as the Baltimore Oriole & the Western Tanager).
But no matter what the subject, her talents, I believe, cannot be surpassed by any paintbrush. (And a little humour in the titles can't hurt!)
