Photography is like marbe collecting...

...you want pristine and special, but so often the glory is ruined by damage, or in my case, blurry focus.

Spent 20 minutes trying to capture young Harlequin duck shooting the rapids and finally had my shot but it came out in NM- condition (or worse). Still, you can tell what a beauty it might have been. ;)

I hear you, it's a really nice pic but, man, it could have been glorious! You were sooooooo close!

Unfortunately you cannot "polish" photos with this many problems. The sharpening tools can't work miracles. ;)

An apt analogy . . .

I'm nowhere near a great photographer, only camera I own is a digital 12 year old Samsung. All I have is this Android phone with limited zoom capabilities. But, I had to share this once in a lifetime moment and this seemed like the thread too do it on. We were in the middle yard this afternoon, spending the day getting some outside chores done. We are avid bird watchers and have 3 feeders, 4 different hanging cages for suet, seed cakes, etc., and 2 Hummingbird feeders. All of which are inside the fenced in middle yard. In the Southeast corner we have a 2 pronged Shepherd's hook with a feeder and watering station, which Patty calls the "Cafe". Today, a very large group of Chickadees and Sparrows were there and too our amazement, we saw an "Albino"! Man, one in a million moment  indeed! The pics aren't great, but in one when they are on the ground it sure stands out!
