Ooo, it ended up at a 6! I am happy :)
Hard to get decent birds now as they are moulting. You should see my raggedy parrot! LOL
Thanks to all for the votes and comments.

Would be better with viewpoint from further out allowing the bird to become merely an interesting decoration on the branch rather than filling the shot. Focus is off as well, might be because your camera doesn't have the telescopic capabilities you hoped depending how far away the bird was.

Beautiful bird. I think, the Kentucky State bird. Great capture. Background looks a little over processed.

Love this image. The yellow - green from the trees behind is a little overpowering though. Maybe you could do a little selective desaturation. Nice job.

AWW Love the bird. I wish he were a tad mor focused. Too bad you had to crop the bottom of his tail. The DOF is good in this shot.
