    My #2 so you can guess I think it should have finished a lot higher.

    Really a truly this is one fine shot and really deserved a better rank despite there being many fine images in the field. Congratulations on a fine image!

    Great photo. The plate & spoon do a lot to make it special.

    Curious or something to eat on that spoon? Either way this is such an interesting pose and you have captured it perfectly. TT~! GL

    It is a strong bird field, but this one made it in my TT! Cute!

    What excellent timing! I've been totally seduced by how cute this Great Tit looks and there is no way I can keep it out of my top ten! Good luck!

    WOW! This isn't just a beautiful bird shot, the bird is also acting funny!
A few weeks ago I searched through all my bird shots and realized, that not even one of them showed a reflection in the birds eyes. :-( But I think this reflection is a central aspect of a good bird picture. And your shot has it all. The reflection, great sharpness, perfect background and it makes me smile.
Perfectly done and a real winner! Good luck!!!

    What a cool capture! The head, eye and beak is very sharp. Nicely done indeed. Good luck!

    Thanks for the nice comments. The camera was Canon 450D with lens Canon EF-S 55-250 1:4-5,6. So the aperture was quite open and did not need need to soften the tail in PP

    Would have wanted a more gradual softening of DOF to the tail. But it does work of putting the focus on the bird's head and the spoon.

    wow, nice capture. you must have a nice lens to get that sharp a picture at that range.

    Normally I prefer natural wildlife in a more natural setting but the unique pose and setting and fine compositional elements set this one apart for me and in my top ten. [Edit] The eye reflection is a big boost to this one and in a strong field, I have voted this no. 8.
