Hey Jane,

Sorry that I havent got here sooner. Beautiful picture taken at our GTG. I love the detail and the sharpness of the feathers on your hawk. That head tilt really does something for this shot. Congrats on a new PB. It was a blast hanging out with you and hopefully we can do something again.

This one is a much stronger shot (and scored accordingly) given the crispness, dynamic comp, outstanding light and color - really brought out the detail very well! My nit about this one (which probably accounts for a good score) is the lack of substance/texture in the background, but that's personal taste - many prefer featureless backgrounds and it does serve to show off the bird well.

That big white thing sure can take some good photos, or is it you? Outstanding stuff and it was a real gas to meet you and all the folks from the western side of VT at VINS.
