Superb composition and timing!
One of the best 10 in the challenge IMO. ((10))

Great stop-motion. I might have tried dodging the eye just a bit to make it more prominent. I like the branches forming a "platform" under them ... if the full arc of the center branch was there I might have left it in.

Wow. This is a shot that better be up on your wall. This is all about contrasting textures, and trust. the soft moving wings, against the tree branches, and the extended hand. The thumb ring adds an extra bit of texture to the hand, and makes it more real. Nice crop. 10

Im sure this was a magical experience, and you've captured it really well. As an image it would be better without the hand, but then the viewer would lost the sense of wonderment at the interaction here.

What an amazing shot! I can't believe that bird let you get that close to it.

Wow! great timing on this shot! I'm also glad to see that the background adds rather than takes away from this picture! Great focus. I also like the thumb ring. :) I vote this a "10"

Wow! You're title sums it up. Good focus! Areas of the hand are a little blown out but it's not like you had time to adjust and prepare! Well shot! -9-

Image isn't that exciting to me compared to what I've seen so far, however I do like how you captured the bird's wingspan as it was landing.

Edit...The capture of the bird is definately a great shot, but your cropping should have been a little tighter on the stronger part of the image (the bird) rather than having the entire hand.

Very good capture.
