He has much to be thankful for...for instance, that he is not a turkey!
Really nice detail--love the white against the cool blue of the sky. Excellent!

really like the details in the white feathers.
General quality of this one is just excelent. Love the blue and its gradation, it balances composition.
He seems very resolute, staring off into the distance!
