This is just so adorable Allen. The BG is so nice and smooth. I love the reeds in front, and the little bit of wingtip blur is great to show some motion and action. Nice look at this little guy.

Wonderful image, Allen. I love the pose, head turn and action and that all-brown palette is really cool. Very well done.

Hi Allen, really nice pose with the uplifted wings and good look at the eye. Complimentary colors all around in the scene. Great to catch him/her near eye level it seems. Well done image!

Allen, the action catch and the warm brown tones throughout make a very inviting view with a fine sense of play.
