I always look forward to your posts. I have never seen a blue bunting - in fact I've never seen any blue bird down here. This is gorgeous. Marvelous pose, fantastic colors, sharp details, wonderful setting and perfect bg. As always, a work of art.

Fine capture of a beautiful bird, with fine sharpness and pose and taken from a good POV.
Might have been even better without the branch with the drooping leaves, but this does not detract from the quality of this shot.
TFS and have a successful trip.

wow, what a pretty blue bird, Gregory! :-)
lovely colors, nice soft bg, well composed with the bunting sitting on your old tree
giving you a superb "over-the-shoulder"-look. great idea with the seeds and the hide.
well done & take care, thorsten.

Execellent PoV. a very nice posture and as usual the stage looks fantastic. The details on the bunting is all so nicely pictured.It looks as if u just called the Bunting "Hey" and it turned back to look at you.

Beautiful blue birdy Gregory and with a very nice soft background. I hope to see more from you soon as last time you took off it seems you were gone quite awhile. Well wherever you go be safe. :)

I like so much the particular soft appearance of the image, probably due to some applyed effects on the layers on PP?
So vivid and intense the colour of the bird's plumage.
My compliments, thanks for share it and have a good time on the road.

A nice capture of this Blue Grosbeak, good composition and detail. You have managed to bring out the colours and details very nicely. The background is blurred perfectly.
