well, with no harm intended to all other works I've seen this week (and there has been some superb work posted here this week) I didn't think it possible, but this has got to be the cream of it... A fantastic photograph excellent in every way. Top-notch!
p.s. care to share which lens you used etc... I don't see the exif

.... nice excuse for me to come back and look at this beauty... it was my mistake actually... I'm usually completely oblivious as to where the photo has been posted.. .I usually browse through the main day's window/table instead of through the categories... I didn't notice it was already posted there... Best of luck I will watch this one with intrigue & happiness for you... I've never been able to nail a photograph the way so many of you do..."The poetry of photography will always be more important than the mechanics of the camera..." - J-H. Lartigue
I agree with all the above comments .... a must for POTW ... absolutley stunning .... love the eye and fantastic feather detail and super bokeh ..... JulieTwelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.
