    Dan:

    I like the colors, pose, exposure.

    To my eye, most of the bird is out of focus, perhaps except for the tip of the bill is better. I know this is a sharp combination, but it looks like it just missed the focus.

    Love the composition and use of the BG foliage. Looks slightly over sharpened to my eye. TFS

    Ummm, so it is not sharp but over sharpened at the same time?
    The bird is in focus, Randy, I think you need to check your eyes.
    Thanks for the comments.

    Hi Dan....I think what Randy was referring to is that you had to over sharpen, as the bird was soft.....

    Dan: I am an ophthalmologist, and have a pretty good feel for eyes. If it was in focus orginally, it was smeared in post processing.

    Nice pose and perch. The grasses in the background make a nice touch.
