Very interesting pose and composition, great stuff Sean. For me the sharping is a little over done it looks took clear and slightly unnatural, but this is just my personal opinion.

A very nice 'pose' laid on for you by this wee bird, Shaun: I notice a comment about your sharpening being a touch overdone.........I am viewing your image on my iPad and certainly on it I'd say it looks fine.
