Challenge: Portrait Of A Wild Bird (Advanced Editing VII)

Literally a fraction of a second before he took off...hence the movement/blur in his feathers and the 'puffed-up' look. Woke up and went for the usual cup of coffee, looked out the kitchen window and he was sitting at the edge of the yard. Put down coffee, ran to office and mounted the 75-300, shot through wife's office window.

Excellent details and sharpness. Wonderful patterns on the bird and the branches; cool how the colors are almost identical. Nicely done! (no vote, just making a few comments)

Great shot. I like how the bird is camouflaged so well - in this case a distracting background fits the image.

Excellent detail. The bg is busy, but I think that works here to show how his natural coloring can blend in.

Mercy, that looks like a cold bird. Love the colors -- the bird and surroundings matching up so well. Nice capture.
