    John what a beautiful ugly bird, one of my favorites, nice colors , angle and BG. I wish there was not so much OOF in the foreground but that's nature.

    The light is superb!
    I also like the natural setting very much.
    IQ looks good. Exposure perfect- it is sooo easy to blow the whites on the necks.

    Boy you certainly nailed that one John it looks terrific. the exposure as Gail noted is excellent and the glance toward you really shows the bill and eye to good effect.
