Oh wow, what a beauty, David. Nice head turn, and beak open, makes this shot. He stands out nicely against that nice BG.

Now that bird has character! Not easy to show in animal portraits, but you got it.

Outstanding presentation here, David. Excellent perch, details, and background, and a terrific pose. Good work.

Excellent portrait. Love the pose and background.

A dramatic shot of an interesting bird. I could wish the mandible was more separated from the body, but the orange certainly helps.
