Very nice shot here. I like the tight composition and blue background that really makes the bird stand out.

Fantastic shot! I wonder how much cropping you needed to fill up the frame this much. Everything is spot-on sharp and well-lit.

Pretty good shot of the bird. The head is nice and sharp and well exposed. Most of the rest of the image looks a little overexposed and doesn't really add anything to the shot. Maybe a landscape crop from just below the right foot up to the top?
