Superbly sharp and stunning fine feather detail. Excellent colours and a great pose. Nice to see a different pose for the GSW other than side view.

Good angle, the contrast between the black and white of the bird and the colour of the tree is great.

Stunning good detail Alan. It would seem that you can switch between landscape and birds with equal quality. Well done indeed.
