Seems like you have everything just right here!  I like the isolation of the bird, the dof, clarity and detail and the nice diagonal perch. 

Very well done!

Thank you, Raymond and Alf!

No new species arrived today...so I'll have to see what tomorrow brings.

I appreciate the comments and it is a pleasure to be back here engaging with the community.

Great composition using the diagonal branch.  Bird is tack sharp, has god colors, and I like the b/g.  Well done.

Excellent capture with a very well handled BG. Just enough twig to give a sense of environment. PS a tiny catch-light in the eye for that small bit of sparkle?

Thank you!  There is a small reflection there and I considered cloning a larger one in(which I have done before), but it just didn't appear "natural":-)

Best regards,
