Lovely shot of the bird. The eye is nice and sharp and he is in a natural environment. We have Reed Buntings here but they look a little different.
I wonder if it might be better to lighten the shadows a tad. I think it would brighten the image up as seems bit dark to me. Also I would clone out the bare piece of the top of the plant he is perched on and crop top and bottom a bit to bring his eye onto the top of the thirds.
Great shot, well done.   Posted: 04/02/2021 11:23:12

Nice bird shot! I love seeing different birds in their native habitat. He seems to be posing for you!   Posted: 04/04/2021 15:01:11

Noël, the bird is perfectly framed into the plant / leaves. Love the head turn. Another great shot.   Posted: 04/06/2021 08:26:50

Wonderful image. The bird is well separated from the lovely blurred background. Nice capture!   Posted: 04/07/2021 15:33:34
