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.
