    Beautiful image. Love the low perspective and the preening post with a nice view of the foot. Why "the wall of shame"?

    ps; the water color rocks!

    with love, artie

    You've been posting "wall of shame" images for a couple of years now, and it makes me want to go...now if only those pesky travel restrictions could go away!!! Good comp with the low angle, and very nice colours. Is that the nictitating membrane on the eye, or some other speck?

    A really sweet pose John. The variation is composition is nice, like the change-up.

    Good exposure, like the soft blues throuhought.

    What did you bait with?

    Thanks Arthur, Not sure why they call it the wall of shame but they do.

    Thanks, Daniel. Yes, this bird had a cloudy/mishaped pupil.
