Merhaba Fikret,
nice composition. The bird is shown in the real wilderness view. The sharpness is well retained with the shiny eye is so sharp.
Excellent lighting too.

Hallo Fikret
I like your point of view and composition as it gives the impression that the bird is "hiding away". I like the bright colours and I agree with Foozi about the sharpness of the eye. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
