The head was moving so is not as sharp as the rest of the bird. Is it sharp enough?

Merwyn, Unfortunately, I think your stilt is a little too soft in the head and legs. And, sadly, we aren't getting a great view of his eye, which is important. But I will defer to the 'birders' in the group that know much more than me! Did you try selective sharpening on him?

I really like the diagonal you created and the tiny creature in his mouth. And his reflection adds interest, although I'd give the bottom a tad more room, if you have it.

You were close! I hope we can photograph again soon! I'm living in Sebring FL until late April, so name a date and place!   Posted: 12/01/2019 16:24:15
