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.

Why should there be rules Geoff for photographs that are pleasing to the eye?
this is definitely that and perfectly captured..the feathers are amazing and no matter how hard I try never as good
