Sacramento Bee fires photographer for faking bird pictures...;.

From Sacramento Bee:

The Sacramento Bee fired longtime photographer Bryan Patrick on Friday for violating the paper's ethics policy forbidding manipulation of documentary photographs.

Patrick digitally manipulated a photograph that was published Sunday on Page B1. The photograph was taken during the Galt Winter Bird Festival and showed a snowy egret trying to steal a frog from a great egret. In the original photograph, the frog was not as visible, so Patrick merged in a different image of the great egret


The newspaper published the firing: The story started off: "We announce with great egret...."
