Great timing, David. I like the wing blur and the rest shows good detail. I like the pose with the feet extended. Nice background. Good work.

This is a really cool pose, David, and the bird is tack sharp. Your Anna’s images are showing me some winter plumage that I’ve not seen before-I didn’t realize they became so gray looking. I can’t think of any improvements to make on this one.
