What I liked with this one was the fact that even when using a long lens, I was able to show this detail to the eye of the surrounding sky.
One of the birds seen flying around you at the Living Coast, Torquay.

Excellent profile shot of a great looking bird. Nice detail in the plumage, with a tack sharp eye (with nice reflection). Nicely blurred background as well.

Hi Steve, I see Ryszard and Eleu beat me to it, thats a great looking handlbar hes got there. I like the way the horizon seems to dip like a valley in the middle of the eye. Fiona

Hi Steve
amazing portrait of a bird with the sky reflected in its eye. awesome sharpness of details. nice white "mustache".


I really like the tones in bg, the reflection in the eye is a great bonus, the colors and details of the feathers are striking.

Hi Steve, I agree with you, the fact that we are able to see the sky reflected in the birds' eye is pretty amazing, well done.My eyes keep being drawn to this.
Can't identify the bird,but I do like the sharp details and the contrasting bokeh.
Regards Jean.

Hi Steve,
The eye reflection quite eye catching, excuse the pun, and the details of its unique natural colours and patterns quite fascinating.
