Very good, Sandy. A very engaging pose and I like the framing vegetation.

Beautiful bird and image, Sandy.

Beautiful specimen, IQ is excellent. Exposure is spot on, and the bird’s pose is very engaging. My only critique is that the branch in front of the bird and the bright trees in the background are kind of distracting.

Even though pink is not my favorite color, I find this to be a very fascinating bird. Nice job on the pose, detail, and environment. About the only thing I would consider is removing the tree trunk that comes vertically out of the birds head.

You certainly have a good collection of bird images from this trip. My only suggestion would be to remove the white tree vertical branch behind this head.

Ok, branch removed and image re-posted.
