Agreed, except for some slight haloing effect.

Well Simon, it was just click the remote. The camera was all set up and the flash was outside. The bright light spot behind the bird is my neighbors outside light by his back door. It was somewhat dreary out and most of the lighting is from the flash.

Great shot and composition. The colors are real nice and I like the way the back ground complements the colors of the bird. Looking at the branch, the focus seems sharp near the tail of the bird but fades a small amount near the head and mouth. Did you apply a small amount of hdr?

No hdr schent1, I guess the focus error was just me. It was using the 28-300 mm lens and only about 4 feet away. Depth of field was very shallow and I couldnt guarantee exactly where the bird was going to be when I shot.
