    Nicely exposed. Crazy tummy feathers, I wonder what they are all about. Pity about the OOF cactus, if the image could cope a crop above that might work.

    Hi Krishna. Great detail and I really like the BG. If it were mine I'd crop more off the bottom (and a little off the top as Colin suggests). Cropping the bottom up to just above the oof cactus would solve the distraction as well as the one in the bottom left corner. This would also give the bird more emphasis in the composition. TFS

    Great looking bird on a nice perch. Love the BG. I agree with the above suggestions of cropping from the bottom to avoid the OOF bit. Love the view of the feet here. Very nice shot, TFS
