Hi Donna!! I just love the feather detail and his brightly colored eye!! The focus is perfect, dof... perfect and composition... perfect! A++ !I wish my camera would do as well with detail in dark areas. I lose detail very quickly in dark and bright areas because of the short range in has a better range. Good luck with your wonderful wildlife shot! #7343

Delores, Thank you so much!!I have had this picture hanging on my wall for a long time and didn't think anyone would comment because as Cheryl said, he is strange looking and it's not the first time that I heard that...I really love hearing from you and appreciate your thought out comments! #11126

Cheryl, Thanks ! He is an ugly old bird and you are right!.. Love hearing from you and thanks for the comment! Marcy, THank you again!..I suppose that since is was so old, he didn't care about flying away or maybe just didn't have the energy. Good to hear from you.. Carolyn, THANK YOU!!!!!!! #11127
