Very nice focus. I think there's a green color cast, at least on my monitor.. shifting the color balance just a tad should fix that. Very nice composition, and good timing!

Lovely clarity, nice simple composition, lovely shallow DOF on both the rope and to blur out background, which is lovely too and contrasts well with the bird. Nice light in his eye too. Very nice. 8

Beautiful! I love how that wire gives you the perspective of just how tiny and graceful this little fellow is.

I think this would have done great with a "portrait" cropping instead of landscape.
