    What's a look. Open bill and crazy eye a real jewel. I'd clear out the shell or rock on the right but that's just me. Really like this one. TFS.

    Love the open beak, the raised foot, the light and low angle! I might clone out the dark spot in the BG and might also clone out the FG shell?, but back and forth about that one.

    Well done. SH with a perfect EXP and a nice raised foot to go with the calling pose.

    with love, artie

    One of my favorite birds, nicely captured. Love the raised foot and calling action. If mine I'd remove the hot spot from the upper left, but that's just me.

    John, love the pose and call here. Your customary low pov is awesome!

    I'd like to see a bit more NR on the bkg as it's a tad grainy from my view. Also, maybe give a tiny bit of love to the breast as Arash mentioned, but yeah this is a great one for sure!
