Very well done, Gene! All of the technicals are right on, and you framed the image beautifully. The little bit of color on the perch is a bonus.

The colors of the perch and background are perfect for this bird. Nicely done Gene.

That's a solid looking setup. I like how the bird is framed here. Squeaky clean green background, I like!

Sweet! Lovely branches with flowers and lichens, tack-sharp, and nice BG.
The tiniest of nits - those 2 little white blips of lichen in the top right could go... otherwise, a perfect image!
This is one that should be submitted to "Birds and Blooms" (or whatever the magazine is called now)
