It isn’t nice today. We have a cool northerly wind again and it’s overcast.I was just back in from our walk and had decided on a porridge day when there was a thump on the side of the van. I went out to investigate and found a Greenfinch fluttering around on the ground. I picked it up as sometimes after a rest in a box they come round and are fine. This one had a broken neck so was an ex-finch. I had my breakfast and decided to immortalise the poor mite I propped it up in a ramekin dish as best I could but it’s head was flopping this way and that. Impossible to get a realistic set of images for focus stacking but I did my best.
A seeds eye view at 1:1. The bit to the left of it’s beak had a horrendous glowing artefact. I tried to retouch it but not very successfully. This is a stack of 79 images taken with EOS Utility, stacked in Zerene using P.Max and given a bit of a shove in Photoshop.
Again 1:1.This one worked better but the processing was pretty similar a 44 image stack and this one had a bit of a crop. The scale was popped on before the crop so should be okay. Lens is the Canon 100mm macro and aperture is f9.
That’s all for today.
