Beautiful. Love that detail! Reds are a bit bright...might try using some selective color editing to pull them down a bit, without otherwise adversely affecting the rest of the image.

Dang!  It's amazing how many fantastic photos get added to this particular forum on an almost daily basis.  Here's my contribution for today.  Yellow-rumped Warbler.  5Diii, 400 DO, ISO 400, F 7.1 at 1/125.

The contrast is quite enticing in this image, well done!  I can't help but think less of the composition with positive and negative space...I would either crop in further, or else go wider field of view...but that's just me.

This little guy was an inquisitive Common Myna who came to see what I was up to on a trip to a lake in Dubai recently.

And a Flamingo all on it’s own early one morning on the highway to Abu Dhabi last week.

I went for a walk today, with the intent of taking pictures of snow-laden trees so I brought along a wide angle zoom and some pumpkinseeds to snack on.  I stopped to take pictures and pulled out my bag of seeds for a quick snack and  had a few chickadees show up.

normally I would laugh at the idea of songbird photography at 40mm.... But with these birds there was no problem getting close enough....
