The branch in my opinion adds to the shot.  How often do shots get messed up when the camera auto focuses on the branch instead!  You nailed him perfectly, great shot!

If it wasn't for that annoying branch in the way, this would have been a perfect shot! Still the face is tack sharp and he looks like he's smiling!! :D (I also just realized this is your avatar pic XD)

:aww: I still like it, even with the branch.

Hopefully, the birds won't be so flighty when it gets colder. They don't even notice the flash, as far as I can tell, though.

Amazing picture, the blue reflection in his eyes makes it even more unique.
