Beautiful picture, but didn't understand the fit to the theme.

The look in the eyes is great. I would have liked to see the rest of the tail in this shot.

this is not a serendipitous event, now is it?

Sorry, I don't see how it meets the challenge. Maybe you happened to be somewhere and you got this shot, but if that's the challenge criterion, couldn't ANY picture meet the challenge?

nice shot, great DOF, but in my opinion this does not meet the challenge unless the bird entered the pic. <5>

nice pic. tenuous connection to challenge topic in my eyes.

Nice shot, the background is a bit distracting, it could have been blurred by opening your lens wide to get a shallow DOF.
