What a fantastic capture, Kenny!


Greetings, Liam ;)

Thanks Liam It was taken indoors under fluorescent lighting without a flash. It took a fair bit of reworking to get the colour back but luckily I shot it in RAW. Also luckily it was tethered about 4 foot away!

Thanks Neil, helianta and Patty for your comments. This shot keeps drawing me back, I think the eyes have a Mona Lisa effect?

A superb photograph of a beautiful bird! A very handsome chap that reminds me of a judge - not that I've stood in front of one, I may add - it's no wonder they are sometimes called 'The beak'.

A definite Like for a great photo', regards, David
