Hard birds to photograph. They need to chill a little. But I set the cam to continuous high and sprayed and prayed! This was one of few usable shots. Editing was minimal. Levels, vignette, and some sharpening.

Hello from the critique club

A lovely bird study that contributes well to the open challenge

A very well executed image that captures the essential detail of the bird really well. The important part of the image is good sharp focus on the eyes which has been nicely achieved and in turn the feather detail is clearly showing through this together with its lovely markings makes it a most appealing image. The pose is good too, I am not familiar with this bird perhaps this is a normal pose but it is certainly unusual in my experience. The onoy minor point I have to agree with flaherma are the two dust spots to the right of the frame, once seen they do become a distraction and would benefit from rectification. Well done for your high score and placing Anton.

nice focus and composition, I might have cloned out those two spots on the right side. I find them a bit distracting but overall, nicely done!

What an adorable photo of the kinglet! They are tough to spot around here and I've only managed to see one and photograph it. Not as nicely as this though!
