I love the black eyebrow of the breeding plumage, gives him so much character and expression!

The eyebrow is the finishing touch to the distinctive eye ring and surely gives him the edge with the ladies, Cindy!

Truly great photo...which comes as no surprise as your declared specs are perfectly selected, in my view.
