All the tones go wonderful together here in the browns of the mockingbird and grasses. There is a green spot over in the top right that keeps grabbing my attention, maybe a clone with the nearby grass would help to remove it.
Detail is fantastic, pin sharp, looking right at you, catchlight in the eye, all spot on.
Quite a scuffy feathered bird, love the tail stuck out, great pose for you.

Very nicely presented. The background is a bit nervous.
Must be a great experience to visit Galapagos IslandsL

I like the picture of this bird. This is a new species for me. The picture is nicely crisp considering your focal lenght and shutter speed, thanks to the monopod. Well done.

très bonne image de cet oiseau, c'est simple et parfaitement executé. Peut être un léger déficit de DOF sur les pattes et la queue, mais rien de grave.

Very nice shot of this ugly........Ahhhh well...... not really beautiful bird :)
Sharpness and exposure are excellent and I love the pose of the bird.
Catchlight in the eye is wonderful and so are details in the feathers.
Very well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Harry

It's a new species for me! We have some species of mockingbird in Argentina but this one looks ugly and dirty.
Details and close up are superb, I like BG as well.
I never saw this bird before. Maybe because I never been on Galapagos ;)
Great details and POV.
I like it!

Good work again.
I don't know whether it is adaptive radiation but this fellow looks like he or she has had a shower.

This is a great photo of a unique bird, but we have come to expect that from you! It seems a bit wet or something... right?
I like the colours, the pose and the low POV. You were down on your belly I guess.

A very good composition that captures the cheeky nature of this bird. The expression is marvellous. POV and DOF great as well.

Sharp capture of the Galapagos Mockingbird that looks like it has just had a bath.
The BG is a bit busy but blurred and the mockingbird is sharp enough to stand out.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
A great photo of this bird. Sharp with a lovely pose and composition. Good POV and DOF.
Didn't you have a comb? For the feathers as well as for the BG?

Hola Selen, me encanta el animal, con esa cara de enfadado en medio del campo seco. Esta muy ambientada la foto. Debe ser una especie muy memética. Enhorabuena por la captura. Saludos.

Looks wet, no? Very nice capture with terrific sharpness and color. Background is a bit distracting though, I mean not smooth. Was it windy, or is it f/7.1 perhaps? Curious.

Beautiful portrait of this elusive bird.
Sharp, crisp details and wonderful point of view.
He stands off the page well against the muted browns.

I loved the Galapagos and had a splendid 2 weeks there.
I love your work and add it to my group "nature's oddities"
The notes are very informative.
