You managed perfect focus on the eye of this cute little fellow. It is a nice, clean, simple composition with good exposure and nice natural colors.

Hello Tabatha,
Excellent compo, DOF, sharpness, light and so forth.

Hello Tabatha
This shot is so sharp its enviable..i think its a lovely pose with great eye contact.
The grey headed junco is indeed a most beautiful bird.

Hi Tabatha,

You really are working at making me jealous with these different juncos. This one is a cutie too - love that eye. Beautiful colors and superb details of his face and plummage. I saw three new birds in the past two days - none were a Junco.

lovely close-up shot of this Gray-Headed Junco with the excellent
luminosity of the image, excellent sharpness and details
of the foreground, excellent POV and lovely eye-contact, TFS


Very cute bird and very good shot. Great sharpness, good OOF homogenous background Nice tight crop and good compo.
Best wishes

Hi Tabatha,

Nice portret of the bird. Very good sharp image with nice details on the bird and excelent eye contact. Good way of using the light underlineing the texture of bird's plumage.

Thank you for sharing,
