A typically amazing image Lillian. If I could make one comment... The light bit above his head is a little bit of a distraction, but the stunning detail and the wonderful eye contact is amazing.

An extremely beautiful natural wildlife photograph, which for me ticks all the right boxes, and so many, many more.

I can always associate with your birds because you take the trouble to remember their names, and Troy is a wonderful name for this handsome fellow.
