This pose id definately worth sharing. I have them here by me and have never really noticed how sturdy the beak is - Well I suppose it has to be :)

The sharpness and composition is great - I really like this pose.

Well done and thanks for posting

This is very good Ben. I like the harmony between the colors of the bird and the background. Excellent composition and pose.

This bird looks very self assured! Very good capture with good colors and sharpness. I always get exited when I see these birds in the garden, but alas! They are too quick for me.

belles couleurs,bons details,une belle photo.

A lovely post of a stunning bird - we have two in the garden, but so difficult to get a decent pic - think they don't like my model release form! TFS
