Just wonderful. I like the lines which lead to the nest. The color is great. Maybe a touch mroe DOF to keep the lead petal in focus, but that is a nit.

Very lovely. Colour is awesome. Would have been nice to see some more light around all of the nest. It seems as though the vignette is emphasising just the twigs rather than the "gone" part of the storytelling.
