Hi Mike

Superb portrait of your Handsome friend, really nice composition and I like the tight crop a lot, excellent detail with a nice reflection in the Drakes eye, well saturated colours too.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Mike,
He is indeed a handsome chap.Well done in managing to get so close.That "VR" of yours is a great lens.Good natural colour with fine detail and clarity down to the drops of water on its chest.You handled the low light well.
Regards, David

Lovely details in the feathers Mike. Well done.

Well done on this handsome fella Mike.
