    May I suggest “Does Herringbone Suit Me?” as an alternative title?

  • Looks a little more like houndstooth to me! :-P

    Great composition and capture of the texture of the feathers.

  • Thank you! It was a happy accident to catch it. If I tried to get a black background too, there’s no way I could have done it ;-)

    Thanks again!

    Stunning capture Ellis, and great stop action on those wings…you even captured the little sparkle in it’s eye. Very nicely presented. Susan

  • Thanks! I shall admit to that being a happy accident :-P I promise it’s a real sparkle though, straight from camera to Redbubble :-P Literally! I think I uploaded this from the memory card :-P Anyway thanks again Susan :-D
