This actually wasn't my original idea for the entry. I removed the real bird from the cage to put the miniature bird in and the real bird decided he wanted to be a part of the whole thing. I thought it was funny and more interesting than my first idea.

I agree about the light. It was a lucky shot. My macaw doesn't stay still for long. I tried to duplicate the shot in different lighting but couldn't. I still felt it was worth entering because of the humor factor. I feel pretty good about how it scored. I think most everyone appreciated the humor in it.

Might've been nice to backlight it against a window and create sillouettes?

Composition is alright, although I'd rather it was slightly further away from the birds myself.

Good attempt.

Your real bird is way too bright and I just don't like what is implied. Squimish I guess.

I'de cropped different, perhaps I'll let the head of the real bird...

try to light it without using the flash, or turn the flash way down (if you can)

cool shot but seems a bit overexposed on the big bird head. softer colors would perhaps improve the image a bit.

Nice shot, better if we can see the parrots' eye though.

Flash overpowers an otherwise nice image. Cute idea.

I think it would have looked better with less light on the face, or maybe another lighting setup.
