[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot I would like to dedicate to my father Nglen.

I am off for a jaunt to Dartmoor in the early hours of the morning and was sat looking through my shots from my last visit when I came across this. I can remember trying so hard to get a half decent bird shot as it slowly sunk in what efforts he goes to in his quest for a perfect shot. Hopefully my journey will provide a few shots to show with the weather thankfully taking a slow turn for the better.

A fitting dedication to a great photographer and a great bloke. Great sharp detail and a very nice composition and POV, looking forward to what you might capture on The Moor..

Hello Jay,

You have taken a very fine photo of this beautifull bird. You have had a fine light and you have made very good use of it. The colors are bright, satuarated and vivid. Image is very sharp showing excelent details of the bird. Due to the contrast between the sharply shown bird and the blurry background the image has a very pleasent depth.

Thank you for sharing,
