The DOF and sharpness and processing are all spot on I think, Mike.

Perhaps this would have scored more highly if it had been taken from the side. NOT an easy thing to do, change positions and not have them fly away, I know, but maybe it would have helped the body stand out more from the background if it were against the green instead of the brown?

I like it, regardless. The wings are very detailed.

Well Lydia, great color and a nice background. And I'm sure it's unusual. But is it an object?
