When the water is low it’s great to bring out all the birds. The other side of that is mud, it was under water, and now it’s not.
No matter what, mud is not pretty. And Lowcountry ‘Marsh Pluff Mud’ is about the worst.
I don’t try to hide it, it was there and you really can’t make it look good.
I may reduce some of the photographs clarity which helps but too much and things get soft looking.
So here is a great bird and… mud.
