Hey Bobby. Good to see you back. Hope you had yourself a wonderful vacation.
You took an already beautiful picture and made it even more so. Lovehow the bird tucks its beak to sleep, but that one eye always on the watch. Gorgeous colors and I love the black background. But its that lighting that takes this picture over the top to higher levels. So pretty my friend. #10828471
