    Good detail and I like the blacks Jon, nicely rendered. Not loving the FG mush, perhaps crop a sliver. just personal taste? The head towards camera with nesting material was worth waiting for. Whites look off, green tone may then come back? I would evict the stem of grass pointing up, from the back middle.

    hi Jon .... a super shot of the busy Puffin , love it . even at work they do show a comical aspect in their appearance ... sooo cool characters !!!
    image does look good overall and very nicely processed .
    if this was mine , I would handle the whites differently , darken the fg mush and would work a bit on the grass in terms of hue and saturation ...

    very nice work Jon !!!!!
