As a side note (pardon the pun), when does "behind" stop being a straight line 90° from subject to viewer? Is there a mathematical formulae? Does it stop at 89°/179°? And at 90°/180° is that then the "side"?
My "behind" bird shot was IMO also 100% behind, had less of a head/body turn than yours and on a technical level one of my best ever shots of this elusive species. But voters don't know that; It's all about the bling. Which I thought it had plenty of for DPC. It got a paltry 5.58...and placed 42nd bah humbug.

I enjoyed the image, the look, the clarity and catchlight. As a bird tog the body language is from behind BECAUSE the feet are perpendicular to camera and the birds butt is visible but the bird has twisted it's body to 3/4. I have found that unless the image is in your face obvious and is colourful and sharp as hell don't expect to get any love. I gave it a 7.

Even with you telling me it's from behind, it still LOOKS like a profile shot. DPC likes us to be a little more obvious. Cool bird, though :-)

It's the way the viewer sees it, if that helps.

A couple of my comments said this was in the wrong challenge - I did shoot the Wax eye bird from behind hence the birds bum so what is the problem
