That background has made so many of these brid shots stand out from the crowd! Of course we expect all yours to have perfect DoF, comp and detail Sylvia! WinkGrin

Wonderfully sharp image of this lovely bird, the background bringing the shot to life with a vibrant splash of colour.

Uniquely yours Sylvia - from that sumptuous background to the use of the NZ Flax for the GT to perch upon - superb in all respects…
