Excellent capture. What a great reward for persisting in the cold weather!

Flat light shows up the colours well, the bird is sharp with lots of feather detail and the touch of frost on the twig gives seasonal information so I think it's a very well put together image.

Not a particularly easy bird to expose for Derek. You have done a great job with this.
