Hello Eugene !
This is one great picture ! You have captured the bird at the perfect moment, while he is eating those beautiful berries - I love his pose ! Excellent details, vivid colors, beautiful composition and POV, nicely blurred BG, and I specially like the contrast between the blue sky and the red berries. Very well done !
