Well it really doesn’t get much better than this, does it? The pose, the bg, the singing & the crisp focus. Terrific.

Really superb singing image with wonderful background. You did a really good job on the interesting perch and placement of the bird in the frame. The colors of the bird contrasting with the yellow background really make this work well.

Gorgeous bird with a great singing pose, Allen. I love the background.

Excellent capture, Allen. Everything about this shot is gorgeous. Dickcissel’s are said to be common around here, but darned if I can find 'em!

One of my favorite birds and I rarely get to see them in Michigan. The BG is very nice and I would tweak down the highlights on the head before printing, but looks awesome on the screen. Well done…Jim

Very nice and shot against a nice background, that makes the bird stand out perfectly. Love it! Cheers, Hans

All said above – fantastic in all respects!
