The Light here is great. It is the best time to get that soft light and makes shooting worthwhile. The Composition is great, with good POV, BG, and sharpness. TFS,

What a beautiful bird, and a superb shot too. As you say in your note the light is soft and warm, as too the colours. Lovely detail, nice POV and good DOF. A great shot.

This is most excellent Jan!
Even the nearly centered compostion works well for this one IMO. No nits, not one :)
Wonderful job and a pleasure to view..
