"Night light" in my friends' yard.

Combination of two handheld images with different (onboard) flash exposures, neither of which was "good" ... amazingly they overlapped *almost* perfectly.

Combined them in Hard Light mode (lighter image on top) with an RGB Curve adjustment. Partly erased top layer and a little dodging to improve color on wings.

Created rough mask from background and inserted later shot of wood-chip mulch in Lighten mode to add texture/shapes to background.
