Lovely shot you've caught there.Looks like it has seen something and is about to dive and pounce on it.

Excellent dynamic pose, and well framed. There seems to be a bit of a funky blue halo, particularly above the bill, could be cleaned up I am sure.

Greg, Looked at the original blown all the way up and there was a very slight bluish line the followed the head area and I removed it.  There was also an area that looked blue above the beak at normal size, but blown all the way up it was the eyelashes from the right eye.  Thanks for letting me know.

Great pose, eye contact and nice to have some clouds in the BG.
