Hi everyone, another juvenile today. I know it breaks the rules being head on but I like it as both eyes are visible and that he has a lovely crest.
Many thanks to those of you that took time out to view and vote on my previous upload and a special thank you to EAS and goso for the user awards, so much appreciated as always, have a good weekend.
Regards,
Geoff.

Yes, it's not often we see a head on shot like this but that in itself makes a refreshing change: and what a superb shot is too, Geoff.

Lovely capture of the plumage detail Geoff. Sharp as a new pin. It looks as if he/she has just paid a visit to the hairdresser before posing for youGrinGrin I agree in general about the head on shot but this is the exception to the rule for me.
Brilliant.
Ron

this is definitely that and perfectly captured..the feathers are amazing and no matter how hard I try never as good
beautiful shot
