Greetings from the Critique Club!

Challenge: It's a Free Study ... anything goes, so this pretty in pink flyer is good to go.
Technical: Love the details and vivid colors in the feathers. The bokeh background offsets this nicely and helps draw attention to that gorgeous orange eye. You can even see the yellow ring of lighter color around the pupil. Definitely conveys the what do you want theme emphasized by the title. I usually try not to have branches sticking out of my subject's head but in this the blurred tree creates an interesting leading line effect. You made it work.
Overall: A solid entry with some humor mixed in.

Nice sharp picture of this handsome bird. Fills the frame nicely with some green bokeh for context. By the way, it's roseate.
