A very special image, Jake. Love the eye and the colors, along with the moment captured.

Jake, a wonderful shot of this secretive bird, not easily found in the open. The feather detail and habitat are excellent. Great job!

Just wanted to add my praise for a great shot. The mossy perch really adds to the shot too.

Such an outstanding bird to get in the open... cool pose as well.
I would get rid of the vertical grass blade....

Excellent! The ruffed feathers are really captivating, as is the setting. Lovely colors too.
