fantastic animal portrait with so much details in it.

I just love the light coming through his feathers below! Just superb, Steven! The water is magnificent...even at that speed it has the feel of a slower shutter speed but it is not...amazing! The slight vignette is perfect I think in this situation - there is no mistake about the subject of the image but the lighting just seems to lend itself very well to the use of a bit of vignette. Briliantly conceived Steven! How many shrimp did you need to bribe him with to give you that portrait head turn? ;-) Really really nice job here, Steven! Superb!
