Seriously cute bird on an interesting perch and with a background that is sufficiently blurred not to distract from the model but sufficiently detailed to give context.

One of your best, Ed, I think you have excelled yourself here.
Detail, colour, catchlight, background - and that perch (including barbed wire).
Picture - Perfect...!

I don't like the barbed wire, but I do like the bird - good quality image, Ed, and warm-toned background.
