Nice job, John. The composition works well and your detail is excellent. F/16 seems a bit much, but it sure did a nice job of keeping the foreground in focus.

Good detail and pose with the seed in its mouth. Like the colors in this bird; you’re lucky to have it as a backyard bird. It is a rarity in Oregon.
