[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I actually staged this shot with a 4 x 4 ft trellis I have purchased. I then stuck a branch through one of the openings hoping a bird would land on it as my intention was to get an almost 3d effect. The trellis is leaned up against a small table where seeds are placed at to attract the birds in. I am sitting in a hide about 15 ft away.

Hi Gregory.
Once very cute scene and top quality shot. Pose and glance of the bird are amazing. I also impressed with excellent reproduction of all details of the bird. Contrast between bright colouration of the bird and delicate colour palette of the BG is awesome. Well done and best regards.
