    Perfect is a good word for this one. The colors are perfect; love the purple cheek patch. Head angle, alert posture, and subject orientation? Perfect. Framing? Perfect! I love how you just got that one huge tertial feather into the frame. Perhaps your best ever.

    The exposure here is about as good as it gets, sharpness is superb, love that little tuft of feathers on the back
