GOOD AND BAD REFLECTIONS
Still mornings on the lake produce the "good" reflections that can turn a bad shot of a Roseate Spoonbill into a "keeper."
Too early and too dark for much detail, but take another look at this Great Egret.
Some can be so "good" that you can't tell which side of this photo of a Black Skimmer is "up."
The second kind can really spoil your shot, like this one of a Bobcat that I saw before sunrise in our neighborhood south Florida wetlands. I forgot that I had the flash turned on. This is the worst of the "bad."
I turned off the flash, which rewarded me with a poor but recognizable portrait.
Of course, nothing beats natural light!
Some reflections are more like photobombs. They unexpectedly spoil a beautiful scene but on "reflection," they actually can add interest to the photo, as does the bartender in the observation deck of our train from Denali to Anchorage, Alaska.
