Excellent, David. I like the pose and the perch and the background is superb-displaying a great sense of habitat without being in the least distracting.

Excellent color, detail, pose, perch, and environment. No nits here. A nice shot.

I also like this quite a bit, especially the surrounding habitat. I haven’t come close to getting a decent shot of one of these fellows, so I can appreciate the difficulty. I’d add a bit of contrast to the bird and a slight vignette to the frame, something like the below:

Good detail and the setting is very nice. Very nicely composed.

Nice separation between the subject and background David, not easily managed with these guys as they’re often right in the middle of everything. Nice work.
