The red dotted eye is beautiful. The white neck region and the underbelly with the faded to ash is amazing. The grip of the claw on the mound looks great. Loving the black texture of the plumage on the back and the beak.

#BirdPoker Proper Place curated by +Phil Armishaw

Monday's theme for #BirdPoker is a little complicated... I'm looking for photos of birds in the "Proper Place" that is usually associated with that bird. As in the example photo of the Red-Winged Blackbird on a cattail. Another example might be a Bald Eagle soaring in the sky or a Gull on the beach. The only rule will be nothing man made in the photo. (Replacing prey in one piece)
