That is ridiculous detail and bokeh. Very nice!  I do wish the shadow stripe was not there, but the feather detail is what draws my eye.

It is a pity about that shadow because it is a remarkable picture.  The posture, the colour, the detail, the lighting - very impressive.

Thank you. I am aware of the shadow and worked on it in pp, even tried to clone it out but this was the best I could do.
