Default Portrait of 'Maggie' (1 Avian image)

'Maggie' aka Australian Magpie

This juvenile maggie politely posed for me late the other afternoon, I hope she likes the result.

Great picture. If she shows that portrait to her friends you will have Magpies lined up at your door to have their picture taken.

Hi Rodney,

Great Portrait!

I like to get shots like this. . . you get to see details of the birds that otherwise are impossible to see.

Nice Work!!!

Yup - definitely a nice portrait. She's sure posing nicely for you and you did a good job of taking advantage of it.
