How much more can this guy put in his beak?
Great shot Karen,lots of clear details with your main subject,I like your DOF with the foreground & the background softer than the bird.All the colours blend together well without distracting from that really good bird shot.

Dear Karen,

What a lovely shot with such a great moment you have caught in here!
The sharpness and POV are well done, and colors are natural.
The blurry BG provides its best to isolate the bird well.
Well taken!

Have a nice weekend.

HI Karen,
Lovely shot of this small bird cramming as many bug's in it's beak as possible! Good dof isolating the bird from the background and nice detail. Best wishes

Hi Karen,
Neat capture of this as he holds his lunch. Great POV and light management with the mixed lighting in your background. Nice soft colors and good DOF. Nicely done.

Hello Karen :)

The beautiful very heavily working bird :)
You showed him in natural colours and very pretty light perfectly.
He looks on this foggy, multicoloured background magnificently.
Very showy composition and splendid realization.
Congratulations, I like him very much!

Best wishes.

Excellent shot Karen - Nicely placed, good colours, sharpness and brokeh.

Hello Karen,

Good tight framing on the small bird with excellent use of a shallow dof & very good sharpness. Nice highlight in the eye plus I see you've captured this bird's dinner! Tfs!

Hello Karen,
This is a very beautiful image but I was a little surprised at the comments about the good sharpness. Yes, it is quite good but can be sharper, so I did a workshop and I apologise if it is not acceptable to you. Please have a look. Definitely worth my two points here. Best wishes.
