Hi Pierre, was this bird loose when you shot her, and am I reading the focal length right at 28.5mm?

It's a litte overexposed around the periphery of the bird, but you did a great job on the bird itself. Good capture of those eyes.

Man, if you were this close and she was loose, you're lucky to be alive. Good shot though.

Thanks, John
