I find the lens slightly soft at f5.6 so a little less forgiving. Well done for getting the focus spot on.

Great photo all around. Really appreciate the blurred but still recognizable background.

A terrific topside view of this pretty bird. I agree with Des about the lens, so you certainly did a good job nailing the focus.

Very pretty- that red certainly stands out against the background.
