My favorite so far. I love the colors and the textures and the light. The focus and moment of capture are perfect. And I like the fact that this is a real, unstaged, success.

where are her young? for all I can tell she is storing food or building a nest, or eating something itself.

Nice color, ok light, great texture, nice dof

perhaps a stretch on the theme of success, but nice nonetheless.
