[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken before the one I posted last night, while he was still wide awake.He likes to sit under the edge of the Golden Cane Palms in the corner so he is slightly out of view of the crows.. Just as long as he doesnt make a habit of sneaking in my back door when I go inside...

Hi Fiona

Your choice of aperture has made the background out of focus which, in turn, makes the bird stand out. He has a nice pose and you've capured good detail. Where you have positioned him within the frame is also very good and works well. Perhaps the contrast in the background could have been reduced, but that's being very picky.

A good result.

Beautiful bird, nicely captured with good details. Good lighting and you compensated well for being in the shadow. Good use of the narrow dof. Well done, tfs.

Hello Fiona, a lovely close up of the butcher bird; as Robert has already stated, the bokeh emphasises the bird and creates an illusion of 3D.
Excellent sharp quality.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Fiona
Strange beak. Well framed and focused bird.


Dear fiona, this is such a refreshing capture. The OOF BG is is making this picture look even more interesting. Sharp and clear capture. Simple yet beautiful picture.
