Hi David wow good job getting both of the birds in focus and nice eye contact from each. I also like the mossy perch, background, and the rain. Well done!

This is just plain drop-dead gorgeous, David. A wonderful perch with two beautiful birds, both in perfect focus and the rain streaks to give it a sense of reality. They don’t get any better than this.

This is lovely David, I really like how the bird on the left seems to be eyeing the one on the right. Excellent details.

Awesome image. I like everything about it. Nice job getting them both in the same focal plane. Good detail in both birds, soft light, eye contact, and an incredible perch.
