They flew onto the dead tree around the side of the pond, so these last few of the duo were pretty dark and far away. I cropped them in and toyed with the exposure a bit and I think they came out okay. And, no, I've not yet tried the red-eye reduction on my camera. I have tried red-eye correction in photo editing software and didn't like the 'marble-eye' result. So you're still getting the 'flash eye' treatment.
