This is part of a private collection. Nice to see them but one feels a bit of a twinge about them being tethered.

I think a little fill flash would have helped this one out. Maybe it would have added some detail in the shadows around the neck and back. I also don't like to crop out part of the subject as is the case here with the tail (could live with that) and feet (can't live with this one), kind of like showing a hand but cutting of the fingers. Now for some positive:), excellent point of focus and the depth of field does bring all the viewers attention to the subject, that part is well done.

The most important piece of equipment we have is our imagination.

I really should have popped up the flash to bring out the shadow detail indeed.

I am reasonably happy with the crop as the overall scene was more important that the actual bird by itself...to me at least. Suppose the toes could have been left in.

It is always good to get other takes on one's shots. Thanks.
