Excellent, I took a shot very similar to this a year ago. Nothing I can say to help you improve on this. Well done.

Your title suits this very well - it does appear very graceful by virtue of the lovely curved composition, the turn of the head. Excellent detail.

I believe you were just a tad strong on your sharpening. I look at the beak and the background and see a halo that cheapens what is an otherwise really nice shot. 7
