Such a beautiful and detailed shot, and he does look "spruced up" and proud of himself too.

Top marks for this one, Sylvia: could not be better. The lighting is excellent, as are the details and colours, and the bird stands out beautifully from the b/g.

He certainly stands up well, on that perch.
By the look of him, he is getting ready to go on the pull, SylviaGrin
