The colors are striking.
Nice catch of the shoveler; slightly blown highlights?
Yes Rick that is true, this guy was the finalist among a lot of photos for his cleanliness as well as eye level capture! Thanks for your comments.
He seems to be rather clean.
Ours here always looks like they have been dredging the bottom for weeks...
