Diana, Excellent details and the background is also excellent. Looks like there's a good bit of side-lighting. If so, you did an excellent job of evening out the light on the remainder of the bird. A very nice image!!!

The wispy vegetation in the background is terrific, Diana. And the warm sidelight is magic. Excellent work.

These tiny little jewels are not easy to photograph as they flit amongst the reeds. You have done a great job with this one, Diana! A beautiful image.
