Lovely shot - I love the perfect positioning of the wings and the detail in the feathers.

Wonderful.

Very angelic with a ton of appeal. I think a slightly darker b/g would also work here as an altenative look with your perfectly lit, beautiful bird. LJM.

Somehow I missed this - what a treasure to find it! Incredibly spot on exposure to get such wonderful detail on the bird and the light coming through the feathers. Simple a perfect shot!
