Hi Ram.
I like this perfectly composed shot a lot. Bird, turning of its head and goal-seeking glance are amazing as well as details of the main scene including inclined dry twigs against the bright smooth BG. My kind regards and TFS. Excellent job.

Guten Tag Ram,
Interesting to know that this is an invasive species, for me it looks quite exotic!
Nicely shown against this brick-background as ideal color-contrast. Sharpness could have been slightly better.
Ich komme voran in meiner Lektüre. Spannend!
Herzlich grüsst

Bonjour Ram,
Très belle attitude du sujet saisie à l'instant décisif dans une belle lumière et sous une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
