Hello Tabatha
This is a lovely dreamy pose you have captured this fine bird in..The sharpness and light is spot on in my book...Perhaps if it were possible I might have just left a bit more space above his head..but that is solely my opinion.
Tfs and Best regards

Hi Tabatha,

You are making me so jealous with these beautiful Juncos. No evil eye on this one who is so sweet looking. The pose is wonderful - the colors are excellent - the details and textures are superb. A lovely shot of a lovely bird.

Hi Tabitha

That's a great pose for this cute little junco. Great exposure too, the whites aren't blown out at all. Great sharpness and great composition.
