Hi Zeno
I couldn't 've agreed with you more.The bird's eyes you have captured gives it a very thoughtful look, as if he/she know exactly what u 're thinking.Good crop and sharpness.

Very interesting bird indeed, with exotic intelligence in the eye, almost extraterrestrial.
Your portrait is presenting it very well, details, sharpness, colors, all are perfect.

Very good shot with brilliant details!
I also agree about the eyes. The blue is like a enigmatic eye shadow that an old, mysterious woman might use!

Hi Zeno, this shot is excellent, so sharp and I love the light-point in the blue eye. Wonderful work my friend, bye and greetings

Hola Zeno.- I like a lot your photo, very sharp and nice colors. His hair and eyes are fantastic.

bonjour zeno
j'aime beaucoup dans ce cliché,les plumes volantes sur le bec,les couleurs et la netteté dans l'oeil,avec aussi le BG bien flou qui permet de bien detacher l'oiseau.
