Although I realize you had no say in what the bird landed on, the dark brown color of the dead flower provides the perfect juxtaposition for the bright yellow bird. Great composition.   Posted: 05/22/2023 15:54:45

A very sharp focus yellow bird with dark background. Meanwhile, the location of the bird is also the best.   Posted: 05/23/2023 04:56:24

Sharp and well lit. A great nature portrait of this little bird. I like the diagonal stem that it is standing on as it's just light enough to stand out from the dark background.   Posted: 05/27/2023 09:03:46
