The wonderful singing pose makes this shot, Axel. Even a little snow on the beak. Sweet detail and excellent exposure. Well done!

Excellent image, Axel. Like the open beak showing the feet and the snow has texture.

Axel, Outstanding detail in the bird and snow. I think this guy is the definition of an optimist.

The "perch" is really nice... Getting the DOF in the snow makes it work really well.
Nice Bird to get in the snow.
