That's a new one for me, Ruth; I don't think I've ever seen an armadillo before. They almost look metallic, and they're so similiar it looks like you've cloned them. Thanks for sharing.   Posted: 10/07/2021 17:57:45

There were 3 running around, trying to get bugs for their breakfast just after a rain shower. Usually they are more nocturnal.   Posted: 10/15/2021 10:49:41

Your edits really make them look like they are truly wearing spikey coats of armor! I would only try and reduce the highlights in the grass. I'm not sure, but a vignette adjusted might work for that. Nice job!   Posted: 10/10/2021 15:32:14

Had me fooled. Could not figure out why armadillos would be grazing on a lawn. Interesting shot. Looks sharp. There appears to be some softness around the faces - caused by crop? I suggest you give a little more room in the back if there is any (or possibly PhotoShop content aware crop). Maybe swap out some of the area in front?   Posted: 10/13/2021 19:28:44
