    So good to see your work again. I had this much higher.

    Couldn't get a more perfect pose. I meant what I said about Audubon. Take a bow, I say.

    Lovely color, especially since it looks like a gray day! Great use of DOF!

    Great detail on this little guy, and a super pose.

    What a lovely little fellow. Good pose, natural colour, sharp eye and clear background are all ticks.

    Must have been reasonably close at 300mm. Quite sharp for you aperture.

    I'm not ordinarily so attracted to shots of birds but this one really captures my attention. I like the sort of "action pose" and the strong diagonal composition. the fact that there's such a high level of detail, strong color and perfect focus also helps...

    Very nice shot -- good detail and color. I think a little local lightening around the eye and check would perk it up quite a bit.

    Nice composition, color, action and facial expression. Everything that I look for in a bird shot. A favorite.
