Took this shot through the fence that held this amazing bird in its enclosure. Stood there for about 15 to 20 minutes waiting to see if he was going to do something. He finally opened his eyes and stared me down.

I have another shot where it appears that he is winking as he opened his eyes. Unfortunately it was a lot harder to make it worthy of entry into the basic editing challenge as the fence lines were more prominent.

Beautiful image. Not crazy about the title, but still giving it a 10. Good luck with a ribbon on this one.

It's a beautiful shot but it's a bit of a stretch to make it fit to the challenge.
