I really loved this one...a 7 from me! His eye and the detail of his beak in the beautiful lighting are quite breath-taking. He's a beauty! Congrats on a New PB!!! Woo Hoo!

Edit: added more compliments. ;-)

Very nice 'head and shoulders' portrait. It looks like this was taken from a close distance or else there was some serious glass involved here. One of the best of the challenge.
