I have always been pleased with this shot, even though it's not your classic ornithological portrait of a shag. Today this guy left the following comment on it:
"“The day you teach the child the name of the bird, the child will never see that bird again.” – Kristnamurti. I want to add to that and say that the day you give the child a camera, the child might see the bird again."
It's great when someone gets it.
