Remember him well David. Nice strutting pose and good detail, and I like the monochromatic background that offers the bird up well.

A real nice look with a good pose and excellent detail. Good lighting; despite a similar color palette, the bird stands out nicely from the background.

He really is “struttin’ his stuff”, David. He looks like a bird on a mission. Great detail and stop action shot.

Great strut, light and shadow. Rich detail, very nice.
