This is one of my favorite birds - the coloration is fantastic. The range of color on the bird is not as obvious in this shot, but the reflected fall color more than makes up for it. Sharp, well composed and nice note.

Well Mario, you should get a ton of points for this shot. The composition, framing, colors, sharpness are flawless.. It's an absolutely gorgeous shot that I hope you don't mind me marking is as one of my favorites. Fantastic.

Good detail, focus and composition. One can even see detail in the reflection. From the figures mentioned 7000 pairs does not sound like much. Well done.
