This was great shot. I really liked the detail in the feathers you were able to capture.

This is absolutely gorgeous - I know how fast chickadees move, to get one this sharp, such good focus, good use of dof (lovely lovely background!) You have done a fabulous job! Thought It would be in the top ten. Favorite for me!

This is a beautiful portrait of a bird but he seems bang on center to me.

Just about perfect all the way around. I see it as a top 5 (9)

This is really nicely done, crisp and pure with great bokeh. Unfortunately, for this challenge the subject is perilously close to "centered". I realize it's off-center vertically, but it's smack-dab centered horizontally and the overall effect is quite symmetric.
