Thank you Deborah. This bird has such expressive qualities. Unlike other birds of prey, you can actually pet and scratch this guys head. He almost goes into a trance as he lifts his head feathers and starts to look like Croucho Marks. It really is quite comical! -G

Very nice :) He looks very 'personable', not something you see in most avian portraits :)
Nice portrait!

Thank you Claudia and Dolores - Dolores it is so interesting that this particular photo was picked, since it was picked apart on photoblink. I feel betterphoto has a better view of photography on an artistic basis as opposed to just technical sharpness, etc. A tripod might of gotten me a sharper image here, but it is very nice that betterphoto noticed the artistic merit.
