Nice - lovely color, interesting inverted position, amazing orange eye, and a strong diagonal leading line. I have no suggestions for improvement.   Posted: 05/08/2021 09:21:44

Candy you have done it again, I like the lighting, the way that you have processed the image, and the action of the bird. Good on you.   Posted: 05/09/2021 01:03:36

Phenomenal work, Candy! I particularly like how you filled in the background. I see that it already had "wavy lines". Did you clone? You don't mention adding a texture. Or did you simply darken using a sample of green from your screen. Fab catch!

What is he unraveling? It looks manmade?

Only you could make "a bird on a stick" an interesting masterpiece!

Candy, once again you have captured a beautiful specimen. The red eye and yellow body are superb.
I find the background to be quite distracting, and as you are so good at changing backgrounds, I wonder why you chose to leave this background in place. Perhaps a texture would improve the background.   Posted: 05/12/2021 14:35:22
