Lovely shot! Sharp, well lit, nice setting, and the bird looks so content :)

Really good feather detail on this one Kits, it looks great at full size. Woodpigs look rather "overfed" when they sink their head into their breast like this, though it was probably rather chilly on that February day, and it may have just fluffed itself up to conserve warmth.
