Hi Arnold,
Good shot. Close distance. You did very well.
Only minor nit is the tight cropping to the right.
Well done...

Nice shot with great details! Good DOF and POV, beautiful colours and nice background. Well done and Thanks for sharing!

Wow. This is a super shot. The sharpness and the contrast are great.What a great closeup. Well done.


Hi Arnold,
the details are sharp and the exposure is very good.
Agree with Annick, it's a to tight, the bird need little more space, especially in the front.
Well done.

Hi Arnold

You have captured this little guy very nicely. I like the sharp details you show in the plumage. Exposure was well handled and your model is very cute. :-)

Excellent capture.
I think you were lucky to so close, but being lucky is all part of the wildlife photography game I think.
Great sharpness and nice composition. Probably as agood a killdeer shot as you'll get.

Hi Arnold,
Lovely vibrant colours & sharpness. I find the composition a little tight specially since it is side on. Probably this is full frame?
