Gorgeous forward wing pose, detail and color, Karl!
I won't mind seeing a bit more detail (ie less blur) as to what this guy was standing on ...

This shot is really super for details and color effect,
it almost looks like a watercolor.
I like how you isolated the subject from the background.

Thanks KK. I have two versions; blurred background and not blurred background. I like this version as the ugly background on this one doesn't take away anything from showing the bird at its best. Next time I might post the one with no blur. (Yet an other shot similar to this)

A very unique image, Karl, without any water showing; I like it very much! Great colours as well.

Gorgeous! I love how the Pintail is standing on it's toes. The background is rather surreal...one of the reasons I like this! (Curoius how the "other background looks though).

Beautiful indeed. You had a perfect angle of light to display the speculum. Love the super clean background.
