Gorgeous colors and framing! When you are processing what do you do to develop such a nice palette of colors?

Thank you. The background is all natural. We are getting fall colors so the background comes out very nice if I can get the bird in the right spot. I do add some contrast and sometimes a little warmth in Lightroom

Just back from Spain with a few good finds. This one's a Red-necked Nightjar.

Thanks, guys. I had to go into a Sumo squat for this one, as it was right underneath a wild olive tree. Really hard on the knees!
