I just love this. I look at it now and then. I can see it as a motivational poster in the CEO's office and it says "Really?"

Great decisive moment. This could be a great ad for defiance. Wonderful texture and oh yes good eye contact.

This is amazing - by far the best photograph of the bunch. What makes this unique is the ruffled feathers which really stand out.

PISSED should have been the title, nice work on this, the wet feathers really add depth and humor into the photo, not like most you see
