Same Perch, Different Bird

A chestnut-Backed Chickadee on the same perch reversed and hopefully better lined up with the focal plane than the last one.

Pertinent technical details or techniques:

Feather and perch enhancement with Topaz Detail. The left side of the image had some rather dingy looking our of focus stuff and I painted over it with the colors from the right side.

Nice pose. Neat perch and I like that it is all in focus, given that the perch has been nicely sculpted by nature.
