Richard....Very nice specimen with a bit of action in the upper wings. I particularly like the blur. The balance of the body is nice and sharp as is the perch the subject is sitting on. I see exceptionally good color harmony throughout. Soothing background with complimentary vignette.   Posted: 11/14/2020 09:02:24

Hi Richard: Great color harmony and composed well. You have used a wider F stop to create more of a selective focus image; the head and back end are very sharp with the wings going totally out of focus. The well out of focus background supports the subject well without any distractions to draw attention from the main subject.   Posted: 11/25/2020 19:10:44

Hi Richard,
I like the sharpness and detail on the subject and foreground against a blurred background. The lighting is perfect as it draws my eye to the eye of the little critter. The colors complement the image. You managed to capture a great shot on the fly while searching for birds.😊   Posted: 11/26/2020 08:54:48
