    Hi Joe, a sweet capture, but the head doesn't look sharp and there is some strange cyan appearing in parts? The cobweb strand is a nice addition IMHO. Nice soft, pastel colours.

    Hi Steve, thanks for viewing and commenting, nice to have a younger pair of eyes viewing the image. I tried to get too much out of the image, a large crop and not enough image quality. Will try to make something with the image with the bird small in the frame. Thanks again.

    Agree with Steve, but how fun to have this individual perch in the open and seemingly still. Good BG too.

    I like the light,pose and the perch. It does look soft though.
