Great image. Color and detail is striking. The water drops on its back add something different.

Karl, such a beautiful transformation they make and you've captured his full glory.  Love the plumage, colors and eye level POV, he even has a dashing little cow lick on top.

Beautiful Karl. Nice low angle and wonderful breeding plumage. I wasn't lucky last spring, so am hoping this year!
