This little fella was a bit timid so I put bacon fat in a hole in the tree and waited for a long time for him to get brave enough to land. After 5 passes and 4 hours he was happy there was no danger and he finaly landed on the tree, this was 1 of only 6 shots I managed to get before another bird scared him off. I added the sky in using photoshop because it was gray and bland and I put so much effort into getting the shot that it was a shame not to present it well.

Hope you like it.

Well done on getting the GSW shot.
I personally think the BG would have looked more realistic if changed for an all blue sky, or clouds and blue sky. The sunset BG would have silhouetted the GSW.
That said, you have done the edit well : )
