What fantastic eye detail, - very good shot. Does benefit being slightly brighter, and a little sharper as in the mod, - which is also cropped.

Great shot, they are a beautiful bird with their black cap, we have many every day in our garden by the bird feeding tray, they come down with the rooks.

Hi Ed
Could be a veteran who has lost his leg in battle, good capture with exposure right for the eye.
