That's an amazing moment to capture! The wings really emphasize the freedom the bird has and makes the fact that he chose to take food from a hand that much more special. Phenomenal focus on the bird; I'd be really proud of this one!

First I have seen this. Nice feather flare and just amazing to have a wild bird take food from your hand. Great capture.

wowsers! Incredible capture! Great job on speed. I really like how the wings have some slight motion blur and his head and body are frozen and sharp. I'm interested in knowing how you shot this. Did you use a tripod and timer? Hand held? Is that your hand AND you took the shot? or an assistants hand? My guess would be a helpers hand while you took the shot. Anyways, nice job, great shot!

Very neat and unique capture. Why such a thick, dark boarder with such a delicate and colorful picture? BOL 6

Thats a great capture, well done. You've managed to hold the camera with one hand ( I think ), while feeding the bird with the other, and still have sharp focus and perfect timing. If only this had a narrow depth of field, so that the background was less busy, it would have been sensational. Also, I wonder if you can darken your arm with a selection in photoshop, so that the attention is more focused on the bird. Still, a very good entry indeed. 8.

7 - Excellent capture and if you did this one handed - amazing. Criticism; frame detracts, maybe a thin one, and likely different color may have worked but this one doesn't enhance your shot in my opinion, also depending what you had to work with, but if the quality was good enough, then just a larger size/crop/zoom. The forearm is dominating too much here, so perhaps, with advanced editing, some selective 'adjustment' there, as leaving the length of it in, adds a context that enhances this shot in my opinion. Although I think the (seemingly) 'front yard' feel here adds a good aspect, perhaps, again with adv. editing, trying to get it more subtle and perhaps slightly darker, enabling the bird and it's colors and wing span/movement to really 'pop more', would have likely made this even better in my opinion. Good unique shot.
