Amazing capture with precision sharpness -- you can even count her eye lashes. Tonality is amazing, color and detail are perfect, I agree!

Hope you have a winner here!

These little ones were raised right outside our back door, she must have known what she was in for when she built her nest with little kids and pets running all around. I did use a long lens as to not get to close and cautioned the kids to keep away from the nest, but she never seemed to be bothered by all the activity.
