Hello from Sweden!
After seeing all your great photos of bird portraits may I also add this photo of a mute swan, that was crossing the full moon light gate @ the sea shores of the Baltic Sea, in the coastal area of Sandemar Nature Reserve on the east coast of Sweden at the time of the full moon rise over the sea on the evening of 16th of March 2014. [ Canon EOS 5D Mark II with EF300mm f/2.8 L IS II USM ]

Wonderfully executed! Love the way you put the band of light reflecting off the water right behind the bird's head.
