    I like it.



    Easily Ray's best shot on this site. An Excellent image.


    A winner all over, the eye contact is superb and drags you into the bird. The perch and detail is amazing.

      Thanks girls... It is a humbling experience for me to be judged IOTW winner amongst such high standard photographers that are on this ( the best) forum. When I first joined, to think I would be in this position was equal to winning lotto.Thanks to everyone who has passed on their advice, because without it I would still be using my P@S.

      Cheers Rev.
