This is a total stunner, Richie. I can hardly imagine the details being any clearer or crisper. I can certainly see why you decided to return to Nikon!

They sing such nice tunes too!..

Looking at the markings, it seems to be a 'heart' breaker eh!..

Crisp capture!....

Thanks ... been waiting to see this one, and it was worth the wait!! Excellent shot, with your skills, and the gear that you used. I hope you don't loose out on 'trading deals' like I have done in the past. Glad you are enjoying this hobby, and your new gear.

Think we all try to improve ourselves Richie, but this one can't be improved, as it's a perfect one.

Like Bruce said I also cannot imagine that this image can get any better than this, Richie. This is fit for the National Geographic and that says all.

If practice makes perfect and nobody is perfect, then why practice?

The colors and clarity of this shot are perfect! I like the fact that you gave him most of the frame without cropping to close. The green backdrop is perfect for highlighting his colors.

From quiet homes and first beginning, Out to the undiscovered ends, There's nothing worth the wear of winning, But laughter and the love of friends.

I have to admit this is really clear Count B. Maybe there is something to the Nikon vs Canon rivalry.

Positively exquisite image Richie!!! What a beautiful creature he/she is and such a good job presenting this:) A wow factor of around 9 or 10? Is that high enough?:):)

Finally! A c-index rating that fits the submission. A gorgeously clear shot, Richie, with perfect contrast in the coloring of the feathers. I can even make out the bead-like fleshy edging around his eye. This could easily have won the "Depth of Field" contest, or placed in the top three, at any rate. Beautiful.

Ok, I'm not going to lie to you I'm not a big bird person, BUT I had to come comment. This Photo is AMAZING. The detail is ridiculous, and the image is clear and sharp! That's hard to do when photographing anything living, especially a fast little bird! Well done! I bow done to you on this one!
