Hello Pauly,
Fantastic portrait in superb sharpness, details and splendid colours. Impressive eye contact. Beautiful blurred matching background.


Hello Pauly

You captured him at its best pose with the beak wide open,
and with obtaining a very beautiful eye-contact with you,
the little catch-light render the photo more beautiful, TFS
