Nice how those feathers are ruffled up, really makes for great details. (no vote, just making a few comments)

Brrrr. :) Nice shot.

The feathers look almost painted. How did you achieve that? I like it. Ugly foreground (nothing you could do about it) detracts from the overall picture.

Interesting pose for this bird. A little too much poo in the image to make it a top portrait shot.

Great feather detail.

Very nice shot, looks like the water was a bit noisy then PP'd. Once again, rarely is it good to have a southern view of a north-bound animal..
