Hello Greg,

This is such a well composed shot with the bird placed in exactly the right spot in the frame, and the twig making a good diagonal acrss the frame.
The colours are well saturated and little details like the raindrops bring it to life.
Sadly, the bird's eyes have not been captured. Without them, the bird's character seems lacking.
Maybe you have another shot which shows the eyes, or wait for another opportunity. Good luck.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Greg!

Very good color and an excellent approach, also a very good POV and excellent composition. Lack only contact with the eye to highlight the nature of the bird. The eye is very important when photographing birds. Greetings and thanks for sharing.



Hi Greg,

Natural environment, great colors and Composition. Already a bird with beautiful Cardinal bird, a good standing in the photo frame. Rain drops on the tip of the small branches also created an interesting image. Thanks for sharing.
