What tiny little feet they have! Very nice for out of camera.

That little guy looks like he's sportin' an attitude! Very well done. Sharp focus and lovely colors. I think the shot would benefit from a little less of the feeder, but whatcha gonna do in a no edit challenge! This was probably hard enough to get as it is.

Crop and DOF is good. Birds are always a good subject IMO. The colours on his neck are great too. The feeder, though hard to be rid of and acting as a bit of a frame is a bit distracting.
