Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that fully meets the challenge

A great image Anton and a great caption to fulfil the challenge brief. The DOF and focus is very accurately executed creating an excellent result. They are a very colourful bird that deserves the careful approach that you have clearly shown here, your timing is good and dynamic showing the bird in action as he feeds on the peanuts. The only thing that lets it down a little is that it is so obviously set up, perhaps just a couple of peanuts may have looked a little more natural but then that would make the challenge theme less obvious. Anyway, well done Anton.

But but but... Striking capture of the bird. An almond in the mix might have helped make the visual point.

I'd have cropped it closer, I think... to make more of an impact... but that background IS creamily beautiful!
