I believe it's a female. Strange looking eye (pupil) she has.

A lovely little female - and yes, they can have a rather wild looking eye/pupil when the light catches it, Karl.

Magnificent pose of the subject and what about all that beautiful blur that surrounds it? It looks like an oil painting.

Excellent detail and colours in your image, Karl. The background and foreground colours, compliment the Goldeneyes' colours very well- nice pose, captured here, also.

The low angle on the action is excellent. Whites look really good.

Picture perfect, as the saying goes. Love the soft blur around her.
