Perfection on a stick.

By AlanWillis    
Photography judges mark this type of photo down.
They say it's only a bird on a stick, and not doing anything.
Little do they know of the years of learning that goes into this picture.
Taken with the help of a polariser filter, to keep the detail, especially in the white bits.
It's only a bird on a stick, but I love them.
This made Photo of the week on the International Sony site, Dyxum.

Hi Alan! I think this is beautiful! It's not 'just a bird on a stick', this shows the skills you've had to work to get the right image(its not often we can capture one of these elusive birds), fantastic detail, colour & a lovely Dof.
Just stunning.

A testiment to your skills. Well captured.
