Gr8 Closeup.. kinda terrifying. ;)

@Chetan: Thanks, Chetan...

QB from Canada

Yes... the title. I wonder how the bird feels about being in an enclosure? The wires of the fence are very clever... visible, but not distracting. The eye has a lot of expression. This is a close-up in the true sense of the word.

@QB: Thank you very much:)

Nina from Haute Loire, France

@grouser: Thanks for your comment...
The bird was quite active moving about in the cage...
Suddenly it came close to the fence and stood still...as if posing
Made life easy for me and there I went...click !

It was as if the captive bird took pity on me struggling with a few shots..decided to stop moving around and stayed still..as if posing.

Cool shot. Very fine focus on that amber eye.

@Steve Rice: Thanks , Steve...
Providence intervened and made the bird still enough for me to focus the eye...
It took a while though, because the bird was constantly on the move...
