This is a pretty big crop of a Crested Caracara.  When I saw this image, it reminded me of the movie Pulp Fiction when John Travolta was dancing with Uma Thurman.  Photo was taken 13 January 2022.

Well done! Love how it is framed by it's own wings.

My husband is a big fan of Tarantino and especially Pulp Fiction - so got the connection straight away when I showed him this! Brilliant shot, Gene - definitely unique and beautifully done!

Cool moment and I like the tight crop, I can see the "Pulp Fiction" resemblance. :)

Wonderful image. Very unique sort of peek a boo look through the feathers. Probably a bit fortuitous but great timing and an excellent crop.

This is an amazing close up, I love how it seems to hide in the wing feathers.
