That is one impressive bird.

An impressive bird, well taken

Noble indeed and perfectly framed. Would frighten the life out of most of our birds here!

Great profile for sure! You really have a lot of fine opportunities to picture these magnificent birds! I have to admit that I am envious!

Wow, your view point amazes me, Michael - you must be very close!
Makes DOF very tricky! Very dramatic lighting.

A wonderfully regal-looking bird Michael. Well done.

Great capture... nice light, color and details...

There was a little post-processing, but most of the "unsharpness" is produced by a pretty stiff breeze that was blowing his breast plate of feathers. Later this day, there were storms that blew in on the breeze..

Holy mackerel... what a fantastic shot! Looks like you did some post-processing to soften the details a bit. Personally, I'd like to see mmore detail the beak, eye, and feathers here, but this is spectacular as-is.
