This image of a Dark Eyed Junco was taken in fairly bright sidelight. What I find unusual in this image is the eye color. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Juncos eye show up so red in an image. It almost looks like a Spotted Towhee’s eye.

A beauty! Great details even if a super-thin DOF. I like that you placed the bird higher in the frame so it can look down the stick. Background is great, too. Really helps the bird be so distinct. The colors are interesting, too, especially those pantaloons!
