I'm really surprised this didn't take one of the top spots. The detail, tones, and overall the shot is perfect. Well done!

F32 at the right distance with this lighting sure would have helped

This could use a slightly greater DOF to include more of the beak, but this is still a very beautiful image. I love the colors and the detail in the eye.

Nice framing, colours, choice of DOF and getting that eye right in focus. It's hard not to like this shot... well done.
