Well the extra work of getting into the perfect condition is so well rewarded my friend. I had to laught when you said you had to get down on your stomach to take the picture and know the different things I have done to get that picture and imagine all the things we do as photgraphers to get that perfect shot. Quite comical when you think about it.
This is so unique and a beautiful look with its wings forward and out staight like that. A handsome fella or pretty lady, which ever it is, with fasinating colors and detailed features. Well worth that extra effort my dear friend. #9130772
