Hello Jose, dear friend,

Look, who is my neighbour for this session? Jose or jozay from Portugal, I am lucky to have him in my armpit....smile. How are you friend? Hope you are well, accept New Year's late late greetings!
This is a 'wow' portrait of this elegant bird. I have his cousin's photo nearby, do have a look.I am fan of your photography and the cameras you carry, man.You should better beware, some day I might visit Portugal secretly and after giving you a fair beating, might steal all your cameras. You can only save yourself by lending me your old one and feel safe forever.
This is an adorable shot, friend, thanks a lot for sharing, take care.

warm regards / Abid
