a heavy crop of an elusive and beautiful bird. Someday he will fly closer and I will be ready.

He is indeed a beautiful bird. I love the straight profile capture, especially those dear feet, with what's probably water glistening on them.

Now I will wait for you to turn this one into an artwork with all your tricks of texture and light.

It's beautiful, as I knew it would be.

Now, one day we shall see him carrying off a tiny warrior or maiden struggling to get free from that beak. Or maybe riding in a little saddle on that neck...

I love that saddle idea!! The image needs that Third kind of thing and a rider would do the trick. I'm not making any promises mind you!!! (but I love the idea of it).

Love it. The bird’s neck was perfectly angled for a saddle. Great lighting you’ve created. I’m in awe.
