Gene, lovely backside head turn pose, I'm with David, also enjoy the green-on-green presentation, and the subtle BG gradient from green to yellow.

I like the soft light, perch and look-back pose, Gene!

James, I typically prefer a 2 X 3 crop, but if I had used it here, the lower left leaf would have been cut in half and I thought that would detract from the image.  Thanks for your inputs.  I sent you a message a few days ago.

Lots of nice subtle colors in this one and beautiful details also. Perfect Look Back pose and the background is awesome. Well done
