Beautiful image but certainly doesn't to be cropped any further, in fact, I'd like to see a little more space at the bottom of the composition to balance the space above the birds head.

Mike has a good point...a drop more room at the very bottom of the frame wouldn't go amiss,that leaf is so very close to the edge.
I like the inclusion of the foliage,it works for me.

This is a good example of a situation where the rule of thirds should be avoided. I would however add that small amount to the bottom.

I would have said crop the bottom but its personal choice and I see most are saying leave it in including a member of the critique team - trouble is viewing large on my screen I have to scroll up and down to get the full picture but since viewing small - YES I can appreciate its good as isSmile

Great composition Dean and I wouldn't change it at all but at the end of the day its personal choice.

My only critique is I think the lighting on the eye looks a little false, it has the appearance of a "glass eye" to me as if it has been lightened and sharpened a little too much

Perhaps just a touch more space at the bottom so that the leaf is not quite so close to the edge of the frame - but a very minor niggle in a photograph with such beautiful colours and tones.
