A beautiful bird and image Bill. I like the way the light catches the beak to emphasise the shape of it.

I haven't seen many pictures of this lovely bird, so this is a treat. I like the way your branch echoes the bird's colouring and the way the lichen lifts the whole image. The detail in the crossed bill and the little highlight on its end bring it immediately to the viewer's attention, as does the catchlight in the bird's eye. Please accept a well-deserved GEA.

Visually stunning in detail and every other way Bill of the first I have seen from you with the Nikon 850 used to seeing the canon 5d mk 4 in your exif. As mentioned the gold lichen really makes the shot pop ,
Best regards
Beautifully composed and beautifully detailed image
