Nice sense of action with the singing pose and raised leg. Good detail and nice perch against a pleasant background. Maybe crop some off the left?

A really nice pose and lovely bg. I also would look at a crop taking the bottom left corner up and in a bit. I like the raised foot.

Hi John, a nice singing pose you captured quite well. Nice details on the bird and a pleasing background.

Thank you all for your comments. This was the first time I was able to photograph dickcissel in a good location.

Beautiful, John. That certainly looks like a well used post. The pose and image quality are exceptional. Excellent work.
