    .Juan:

    Nicely exposed, sharp, great eye, open bill with drops, all good.

    Comp is effective with soft background.

    Fits the theme very well.

    Cheers

    In my opinion the open beak makes it a great image.
    Congratulations!

    Hi Juan, great HA, and well timed to capture the open beak. Excellent details all round, sharp, and the droplets take this up a few notches.
