Really good colours here, however I find the other flamigoes distracting.

Normally, one might not like the forward facing bird to be out of focus, or the neck on the left. But somehow this works for me.

I wonder if this might be a little too artsy for DPC :)
This is an interesting shot. Very interesting, actually.
I like how the in focus subject isn't all visible to us, and his back faces us. His head's even out of shot. It's not something I'd do, cause I'd be too afraid of people's reactions here.
This is definitely a shot that I'd normally be guilty of voting too quickly on. The title suggests I should look under the wing. And I was initially confused that there wasn't much of interest under that wing (though there looks to be a monkey head highlight on the bottom that I like).
Now I gather it might be more of a metaphorical title. The feather formation is very interesting on the wing and back and his seem different to the others around him. Not out of the question that he might be their senior/head/alpha male or something. Metaphor being he looks after them.
I might be waaaaay off with my analysis here. But I like it.
After looking at it, and because it got me thinking a lot about the subject, and his relation to those around him (and even what his head looks like), and due to a strong title I think a 7 is appropriate.
