I've been seeing a lot of these this winter with my bird feeder but I have yet to figure out how to get close enough to get a photo as they are fly away when I try to stand out there for a shot. Nice job, good detail on the feathers.

Too much topaz clean..... Not enough contrast.. :)

It's interesting how the icicle interrupts the flow of the bird, but also adds a sense of dynamic-ness to this.

Amazing detail in the icicle (I take it that's what that is) and in the chickadee's feet. Nice capture, great image.
