    I really like the stretched-back toes.
  • bibliona 9y

    I like the detail in the bird, especially the toes that look like they helped spring him off the dock. The neck and wings are beautiful, too!

    Thanks ALL around.. especially to those of you who haven't commented on other ones in this series.. I appreciate your appreciative comments on my fortune photos of these beautiful birds.

    Thanks to you and to lemperleconnie.
  • Gary 9y

    I bet you rEgret not having noticed this bird before. Anyhow you've made up by by complimenting the beauty of this bird with your work.
  • Peggy Collins 9y

    Wow, those are stupendous. The birds of course are beautiful all by themselves, but you've really done them justice. Even more than that...you bring out their majesty.
  • Lumiere2005 9y

    Mohamed, as honorable as I assume your intentions and honorings are, I have chosen to decline all group memberships that require comments in return -- especially 5 for 1! -- as I prefer to comment and/or fave by natural discovery and esteem, instead by artificial agreement.
    So.. No, I'm unwilling to join the dazzlingshots group at this time, and will adblock your group award image so it no longer takes up that much space on my photo page.
    That said, I appreciate your attention and am pleased to be your new contact.
  • Kimmy 7y
