Really nice set of images of this beautiful bird.
#4 just has the edge for me.
It may be my monitor at work, but the images just need a little more punch, as the colours look a little flat - just a suggestion.
Well taken.

Thank you everyone for your votes and really nice comments. Thanks also to Richard (Doghouse756) for the mod - I don't mind mods at all (that's why I enable the option) - it's a great way to learn and I think Richard's mod is a definite improvement and really makes the image "pop" Smile
