WOW. Such detail. All five photos are outstanding with perfect exposure and amazing detail in feathers. Color is very natural. DOF is great and all have a beautiful uncluttered background that shows off your subject well.

Now seriously...how cute is this picture. It is one to show the grandkids. And besides that obvious notion, you have caught this bird during rest. Not easy and takes patience.....beyond the fact that you have it in perfect focus. You do strive for the best.

Hi Tom,
excellent details in the feather and the composition is just brillinat. Must've taken some time to find it in just the right pose and sat still long enough to shoot!

Hello Tom,
Beautiful and fine composition. The pose, the subtility of plumage-colours, the neutral background are excellent. Lovely little bird.

Hi Tom

I don't know how i've missed this when originally posted, but now taht i saw it i had to congratulate you for it :)
What a splendid shot and what a charming composition!
The details and textures from the plumage are terrific and the OOF BG work superbly to make the subject stand out so nicely.
Impeccable DOF and beautiful colors as well.

Bravo and TFS

Encore plus impressionnant que les premiers, tellement détaillé.
