He is thinking! I find the stump on the left a little distracting, maybe you did not have an option? Otherwise the positioning is fine.

Great shot Willie.
It's amazing what you can do with your 1M pixels video cam.
Great pose, composition, colours and details.
Very well done.

Nice shot Willie. Very interesting bird. It's big. Good colors and sharpness. Nice composition. Great details. Nice note as usual.
Again a wonderful shot from you Willie. Good details and POV. I do agree with Nico that the tree in the left is somewhat distracting. Was it too big to clone out?

Lovely shot Willie, it's a shame that wood is there at the left but apart from that it's an excellent composition and hte details are great for that camera. Very well done.

Another amazing shot from the camcorder. This one is nice and sharp, almost as good as any of those pesky EOS 300D shots that the experts use.
I like the pose and the environment. Good composition, well done.

No way this is from a video-cam. :)
This is a razor sharp capture. Excellent pose and POV. Nice natural BG. My only nit is the branch on the left. But thats nature. Great shot Willie.

Oh my what a pretty bird, he makes brown look quite fashionable! His feathers are so clear and sharp, and the reflections in the pool are interesting. Very nice bird, thanks for sharing him.
