Perfect subject for this challenge. The DOF is throwing me a little, though. The eye and a bit of the corners of the mouth are in focus, while the beak is not, making it all look quite distorted instead of cute to me. More DOF when shooting to have everything from the tip of the beak to the eyes in focus and a filter over the lens or applied afterwards to soften it up would work better IMO.
