Not going to lie, I am definitely hoping for a 6+ on this one. I just really love this shot, I feel like there is a lot of great tension. We will see what the voter's think though.

These are actually not lovers at all, but two males that are competing with each other, with lots of beaking. I have other shots where they are actually making contact with each other, but this was the only one with the twisting of the necks, which I thought was cool.

The score is ending up right where I was hoping! I am very happy with it. My best scoring Free Study yet!
