EXTRA - Photo Specific Information:
When you have a patient subject, like this chap, you have an opportunity to maximise the quality of the photo.
Here we took the photo and realised the amount of shadows and wanted to improve the quality.
I asked Marie to stand in the sun light to create a complete shadow (ie uniform lighting), and then used the flash. We were ecstatic. The result was outstanding (as seen in the next photo labelled "Flash Fill").
General Species Information:

Grey with a pale brown star pattern around the eye.

We don't get Jacky's in our area.
