Bird on a Wire

In this case a clothesline. One of our hummingbird feeders is maybe 8 feet from the nearest clothesline and this male Rufous decided it made a good perch a couple of weeks ago.

What technical feedback would you like if any?

I cloned out a second out of focus wire that just touched the tip of the tail-did I leave any evidence?

What artistic feedback would you like if any?

Anything you notice.

Any pertinent technical details:

7DII, Sigma 150-600 C @ 600 mm, tripod with ball head and Sidekick, f/8, 1/1600, iso 1600, manual exposure. Processed in LR & PS CC. Cropped to 8.3 MP.

Dennis, this is truly an excellent take of this hummer. The detail is very impressive. I could not detect the second wire you mention or any artifacts with the cleanup there at all…:+1:
