    Another killer liftoff! Love the eye contact, and the far wing is just low enough to be clear of the beak. Nice.

    My only suggestion would be to shift the crop up a bit; the top of the frame feels a bit empty, and the
    bottom of the perch is really close to the bottom of the frame. The perch is as good as the bird, so
    getting it off the frame edge will force more attention onto it.

    Really nice work Jon! The wings down is great so is the two tone BG. Dorian makes a good suggestion if you have the room. Nicely done!
