Nice pose, I like that you kept the tonal depth on the bird, it looks great against the dark green background.

Excellent lighting captured for this image, Karl, plus the yellow tips on the tail, and the bluish tint on the uppers of the far wing, add nice colours to the photo,as well.

Gorgeous lighting effect on the Waxwing to set it off against the bg. Nice one Karl!

it looks as if it was taken in the studio, with all the right tools.

Quite a unique waxwing image, Karl!  I love the in flight pose, the excellent detail and colours, and the beautiful spotlight effect on the bird against the dark background.

Cool pose and fanned tail, the dark BG works well here.
