An extremely impressive cropped photograph Hugh, one in which you have managed to focus upon the true beauty, colours and superb detail in this rather beautiful looking bird, so very well indeed.

Regards Nathan

P.S. My only area of concern is the background, which slightly distracts the eye, especially down the rhs.

The crop works well, and the extreme sharpness feels right for that eye...
