Awesome detailed work Ken
Hi Ken, Wow! Great capture! Perfect timing! Instant favorite!
Or, How Do You Like My New Hallowe’en Mask? Think It’ll Last Until October? What a great shot; what a fine feathered face. Yesterday I walked around a couple of ‘unofficial’ wetland areas just off little-traveled back roads, & I was Cursed roundly & soundly by any number of Red-Wings, male & female. Didn’t see any young ones, though.
