An exceptional image.

Superb capture and pose, Brian - wonderful plumage detail and patterning and fine eye - he is certainly scanning for possible prey. Like the complementary bg processing and vignette.

Beautifully captured Brian, and good processing too.
One was after our sparrows the other day but couldn't get at them through the branches where I hung the feeder.

We had one in our garden earlier this week, however I was nowhere near my camera.
This is such a good capture Brian and a superb presentation too.
