Hi Farid
Woooooooooooooowwwww, very nice and perfect portrait.

Lovely shot of this beautifull bird!


Nice shot of this cool bird.
Maybe more space a round the bird imho. Well done.

Hi Farid

Love the detail you show in the plumage. All fluffy on the chest and sleek on the bottom part of the wing. Lovely saturated colours, crisp, clear and sharp. :-)
