My mother's house in Southwest Florida doubles as a bird sanctuary. This mooch was a periodic visitor while I was down there on vacation:
The Wood Stork (Mycteria americana) is an ugly sucker. It came around when I had my SLR, but the shots were all situated around the driveway and sidewalk -- not that pretty at all.
Below is an experiment, where I isolated the bird from the background. Rather than make a mugshot out of it, I tried a combination of Alien Skin Snap Art (Oil portrait on heavy canvas) and Nik Silver Fx Pro (vintage B & W).
It's like putting lipstick on a pig, but I had to try something. ;-)
