Michael, this isn't only an intimate moment, it is a most beautiful capture of a very precious and evocative moment between parent and chick. Without doubt one of the most special images I have had the pleasure of viewing. Thank you.

Mike, my goodness, as sweet as can be - fantastic poses on both - their head angles are perfect to convey the intimate moment captured.  Beautiful water color surrounds to top it all off - super deluxe image.
