CommentThis was one of a pair of juvenile birds, perched and possibly waiting for food delivery from an adult. I liked the final image for several reasons: the profile view of this bird is very striking; the colours of the juvenile are more varied and interesting than the adult, particularly in the warm brown tones; and the whole composition seems to hinge very effectively around that incredible emerald eye.
