I absolutely love this portrait! I wish I could buy it and put a print of it up on my wall... but my girlfriend took one look at the picture and stated, "No! The eye is scary!"

Guess I'll have to put it up in my study!

But really, I love this photo.

Delighted you like it, Miguel :^) I reckon it's more wild and crazy than scary.

Zhoen, they might be unafraid and inquisitive, but even they consider getting that close, too close.

Watercats, that dinosaur ancestry certainly comes through in some birds. I find it a nice thought: that some, at least, are still with us.

Bill — yep!

I see exactly what you mean in your previous response to my comment. This is one scarey chook!
