I must say you did a fine job on your first closeup shot of this little beauty. I love the fine detail and it's plumage is simply stunning to view. Great eye contact and such an attractive and colorful blurred BG. You can't complain about the exposure as the lighting looks perfect and you obtained wonderful DOF. Well done!!
