Got a shot of this little guy. This was a brutally cold day as you can tell by how much he is puffed up so much.

Nice pose and nice catch and I really like the cold blue colour.
Since you are okay w/critique, to my eye, the bird itself looks like it could be brightened by at least 15-20% or more. (There are no pure whites in this image, even the catchlight in the bird's eye is not white)

I second that.

Very nice with some good detail captured. Would love to see it reposted after lightened up Randitola.

Awww... poor fella.... I wonder how those poor creatures make it through the winter... it always amazes me. We are so tied to our houses. I guess if you make the right next it keeps you warm and cozy.
