Hello Jose,
It's always a great feeling when you finally get the shot you wanted after waiting for what seems like hours. Truly a beautiful bird as is evident by this top quality photo.
I really like the detail in the bird as well as it's perch. You can clearly see the tiny lichens on the bark.
Excellent eye contact as you even managed to capture that ever sought after catchlight. Great work!!
