    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Nicely groomed.

    I was attracted to this bird because of its nicely groomed hair. I really tried to get as close as possible without spooking him so I can get better shot up close. I'm glad I got one. Thank you very much for viewing.

    Nicely groomed.

    Wow! Nice shot with a touch of drama. Perhaps a little too much makeup on the model though.

    Thanks, Chuck. There's no retouch on the makeup, just a layer of contrast enhancement on the model.

    I'll bet she just got back from the hairdresser, must be prom night. Nice catchlight in her eye! It'll take a bit of work to retouch the wrinkles though.

    Any idea what species it is, Willie? I don't believe I've ever seen one of these before.

    I literally have no idea what kind of feathered bird this is, Frank. I'll see what I can do when I visit the park again.

    Must be mixed breed, Chris. What do you think?

    Yes, I think some white leather, rhinestones and a large collar is needed!
