Very Cool Picture. Normally I would just say Cool Picture and not over use the word "very". But in this case I wanted the extra emphisis and used the word "very".

Great Shot.

The light really accentuates the texture of its head.

Oh, That is so nice. Congrats on finding a new high. That is a photo contest winner, if I ever saw one.

I love the way the texture of the skin tapers off into the perfectly calm water.
