Which copyright watermark should I use? The small one that doesn’t detract from the Greater Yellowlegs or the larger one that would make it harder for image thieves to use?

The larger copyright watermark works okay on this image but with a busier background it might not. It would be more difficult to crop or clone it out. The small one detracts less but it is easier to clone or crop out.

Decisions, decisions.

This Greater Yellowlegs was photographed in a tidal lagoon at Fort De Soto County Park’s north beach in Florida in October of 2008. I was photographing the Yellowlegs while sitting in the warm waters of the lagoon. You can sure see why they were named “Yellowlegs”!
