BD - nice shot - I always like these kind of shots where the raptor is looking right at you. I am always reminded of that famous quote from Robert deNiro in the movie Taxi Driver - "You talking to me..." . Too bad about the broken branch sticking out the side of its head, but you take what you can get. I might have tried removing it - Content Aware Fill does remarkable things .
I left it in because I liked the depth it created. It's an easy take out should I chose to do so. If this guy had a rat in his mouth or was doing something fun with the missus, the branch would be the first thing to go but he's just sitting there all smug in knowing he's in a protected environment.
