I had a feeding dish just underneath in front of the bird and had the camera mounted on a surface in front of feeding dish.
I used a wire remote with a 15 metre extension.
Also used a reflector on right side.
Cloned some seed crumbs from the beak.
Cropped, Resized.
Darkened Sky and brightened clouds with selective colour and then reduced noise of clouds and sky.

I think the focus is a bit off. Anyway, I like it.

7 - Wow, good close up and perspective. The bird looks huge. Criticism; difficult with the 'opportunity shot', but just a bit more detail in the feathers, perhaps just a 'fraction' more zoom out, just seems a bit too close focus wise, but hard to discern and if the 'blown' parts were 'fixed', make this even better in my opinion. Maybe also a selective desaturation to 'enhance' the illusion of the bird, somehow, not sure.

EEK! That is kind of scarey. Amazing detail though.
