    Just beautiful, super detail lovely pose great colours, unobtrusive background. I also like the iris detail. Well done!
    The slight negative head turn is of no consequence for me.

    Another nice Gatorland image Joe, the RP does improve things a little - worth the effort IMHO

    Solid portrait of this snowy. The breeding plummage is a plus.
