Pin sharp - great up-large.

Looks a 'tad' on the dark side though, maybe a little lift with the levels.

Tell you all about it tomorrow Mark?

Great capture of a beautiful bird.
Only a very small amount on the dark side
The out of focus end to the branch is a little distracting though (nitpicking!)
