I like the mood of this shot with the falling snowflakes. A bit of a head turn would make this an even
better shot.

Rachel, sweet bird and great-looking perch with the berries and the feathery snow clumps.  Love the mood with the falling snow and the interesting colors of BG that ties in with the berries - beautiful capture.

The falling snow really helps this image and the complimentary background color is lovely. Personally when i am arranging perches for set up photography i try my hardest to not show the very obvious pruned branches. If one does show up it gets addressed afterward. I see three clipped branches in this shot and it could be because i do some set-up stuff that i am taking notice. They don't always land where you want them and perhaps your plan wasn't to show these ends. Still very pretty
Thanks for looking,
Michael Ashbee

Very nice image with great colours and atmosphere - I agree with Michael that the pruned branches are a little distracting
