Beautiful bird, BG and balance with the flowers in perfect light.

Probably the best Eastern Bluebird shot I've seen.

Thank you for the kind comments everyone — they are greatly appreciated. I neglected to mention that the tip of the pedal of a flower was cloned out on the lower left border. I noticed an artifact of that cloning after I posted this image and removed it. My thanks also to NatureScapes for the EP — it is an honor.

Great looking back pose and an excellent setup, Ron. Love the raggedy stomp.

Perfection and artistry - what a wonderful combination, and such a feast for the eyes!  This is so beautiful and yet with a touch of melancholy - and I mean that in a good way.  8)   Beautifully done, Ron.

Stunning shot, Ron! So beautifully composed and presented. The flowers are a wonderful element. I'm so impressed with your tech specs too. :) I'd be getting a lot of noise with that combo.
