    This is a beautiful image, Joe!

    Love the presentation, colours and detail on this tiny bird. Wonderful pose, great HA and positioning of the wings is perfect IMO. Superb BG.

    Such a pleasure to view, thank you for sharing,

    Kind regards

    Good clean image pleasing colours and interesting wing position, sharp where it needs to be, I like it.

    This is great. Ditto all the positives from others. Only suggestion would be to move the bird down in the frame as it's very close to the top of the frame now. You'd also minimize that darkest, lower right corner if you moved the bird down a bit.

    I had the same thought as Dorian, but otherwise such a beautiful setting and image.

    Thanks everyone for viewing and commenting. I heard the suggestions to lower the bird in the frame and worked on the image to show that suggestion. Here is a repost.
