Composite shot of Breeding Brown Pelican in Malibu Lagoon Reserve

My First Composite Job.....

This is actually a composite shot. It's the merging of two shots into one. I shot this high speed hand held & in the first shot I managed to cut his/her toes. In the second shot I had all perfectly framed - - & he/she stretches the beak so the top few inches is out of frame. Needless to say I was disappointed. So I made it a lesson in post production & editing. Valuable lesson. I hope it passes your inspection & I'd love to know if you can find my "repair"/fix.....
