Beautiful Brown Thrasher
Lucky to get these pictures, this bird doesn't stay in one place very long.
Photo editing software
I am looking for photo editing software. What would anyone recommend ? Where would I get the most bang for the buck? I am new to photography.

Here's to the crazy ones...
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” - Rob Siltanen
Since I've gotten active on UHH, I've noticed a particular thing. There are a lot of ill-informed, poorly written, or borderline offensive posts asking questions that might be trolling, might be naïve, or might just be offensive by their apparent greed and unconcern for others.
As in any public forum, these attract their share of unsupported opinion, of irrelevant and sometimes silly responses (see any Nickanon or PP thread), and sometimes outright derision for the opening thesis.
But one thing I've noticed is that there are a number of people on UHH who respond sincerely, who offer opinionated but not dismissive advice, and who give their legitimate thoughts on the most outrageous of questions and theses. You can ask, "Is the Nikon Dxxx or Canon Dsxx really a piece of overpriced crap compared to the "Nonamekon?" and you'll get some sincere and honest responses, from people who are knowledgeable, and offer fifty percent "what" and fifty percent "why" when they post.
So here's to you folks - the ones who treat everyone assuming their sincerity, offer well-informed advice, and recognize that the "right answer" for one person is not necessarily the right one for another. It isn't easy - at times, there seem to be more stupid or deliberately provocative questions than there are sincere but ill-informed ones.
You folks are the gold in the ore of UHH posts, the polished gemstones among the druse, the reason I keep coming back here for both information and for the occasional tidbit of information or experience I can contribute. I'm trying every day to be more like you, and less cynical, snarky, or confrontational.
So here's to you. I'm not going to call out names, but I hope you know who you are, and know that so many people who populate this place appreciate your contributions. I have at least a half dozen regulars with high post counts in my mind, but no doubt, there are many others I haven't yet noticed. I wish I had your patience, knowledge, and ability to articulate them.
Here's to you!
Wild Teasel At It's End
I was trying to bring out the color that is still left in the plant and highlight the color with the out side thistles.
Went on a little jaunt up into the mountains of N. Carolina and hunted some waterfalls. They are widespread and some are very hard to find. Spent five days searching with google maps and only touched the surface. I am thoroughly convinced one could spend a long, long time on a quest for waterfalls in N. Carolina. Hope you enjoy the scenery. More to come
This is Bald River Falls which is located about 12 miles up the Cherahola Scenic Parkway beginning at Tellico Plains, TN. Not quite to N. Carolina yet but a nice drive.
Crabtree Falls is located in a deep, steep gorge and was very difficult for us to hike. You will hike about 4 miles there and back.
Roaring Fork Creek Falls in the Pisgah National Forest is a long cascade of about 100 ft. (about 50 ft. high) in a very beautiful setting.
The 60 foot hight Looking Glass Falls.
High Falls is 150 feet tall and must have some fish below it or the fisherman in the pic is wasting his time.

A Glowing Dove.
I used a different process to do this image. I found it likable. What do ya'll think?
Not for the faint of heart lol
We caught this scene, where the GBH struggled for more than 20 minutes to dispose of the evidence. Peace Valley Wildlife Preserve. Ha ha. Not for this catfish!
