good detail, nicely positioned for background.. perhaps requiring a little less headroom and a little more talk-space BUT thi sis me being deliberately critical - good shot overall

His beak was protruding from the thumbnail. The nerve! One can see this Golden has not a single flea. Perfect crop and the light green baseline is fine too. TG

What a fine bird he is Lillian - I'm off to Scotland again in a couple of weeks and we are sometimes lucky to see these - but they're usually at about 100 feet and above. Back to your image - beautifully lit and with exquisite detail.
