Hello Bill,
I've been extremely busy as of lately with no time to get on site. A very eye catching image with beautiful vibrant colors. The whites are illuminated nicely and I particularly like the shadows showing under the wings. Awesome detail and a pleasing balance in lighting. Looks like a fine painting!!
