Smashing shot, Sylvia: you have captured such excellent detail and colours, and both bird and the diagonal perch stand out so nicely from the darker b/g.

Fantastic image ......and the full frame must help in retaining all that lovely detail.
Love the little flower mimicking the colour on the bird as well.
The dark b/g and presentation is just spot on.

A beautifully lit capture Sylvia - just one bud open is ideal - makes this a very pleasing image.
