Very unusual and interesting composition with the serpentine curve encompassing almost the entire frame and the eye dead center. A 'break the rules' shot that works! Great light and detail too!

Aloha Deborah,
Well, I'm coming to the party late, but this is another stunning image. The title is perfect. What a look from this bird! And every feather is perfect.

I also am loving the moon watchers. You are the queen of the birds!
