great shot.
I most like the angle as it gives some sense of action or movement in some way.
Brilliant shot.

Nice sharp and colourful image.
Maybe cropping the bird in the LH background out would improve the image and composition.
Well taken.

What a great shot, you have captured this bird to perfection the only improvement would have been to crop out the distraction of the out of focus bird on the left. but I still like it

Excellent work. The yellow berries provide an ideal setting for this finely detailed subject.

These are rare birds, to actually find one is brilliant, to photograph it like this is something else
