This shot is so lovely, I can't believe anyone could give it a 3 without malicious intent. Congratulations on getting it published. (This comment is seriously belated, but I did give you a 9.)

A wonderful shot all around. Congrats on the HM. Didn't vote in the challenge and just happened to come upon this shot. Would you have any quarrels to cloning out that piece of twig that extends under the bird's right wing? the shot would've been a clean 10 for me. It would've felt more free and open as that piece of twig is somewhat distracting. It's a personal issue I understand as I've been hesitant to clone out things which I would've loved to have not in the shot but left them in. Was sort of in a 50/50 situation.

An absolutely stunning image. I gave this a very well deserved 10 and added it to my favourites.

I apparently gave this a 4... which I didn't. Hmm. Must've been a recorded keystroke when voting that went from a 4 to yours. Sorry about that.
Fortunately the 6 or 7 I'd've really given it it wouldn't have pushed you to third.
Good shot and congrats on the HM.

Congrats on the HM and getting this published,
(The thing about the '3'voters - they'll always be there and we all have to put up with them.)

It is people like you that make me scared to submit anything for the "Birds in Flight" challenge. Great shot.

Beautiful contrasting bokeh. Doesn't look like an eastern bluebird. This a Hahn image? 8 or 9 if I could vote.

Such a fitting title for this challenge. You have captured this bird beautifully. The detail in the wings is amazing and I am noticing you even have a catch light in the eye. Even the twigs in the corner play an important part of making this image great, the colors contrast nicely with the blue of the bird. One of the top images in this challenge for sure.

This is just outstanding. I love everything about it. The diagonal line of his wings, the bokeh, the focus and DOF. Lovely.
