Beautiful piece of art you captured there Alex! Colors and composition are fantastic. I agree with the crop choice on this one though, but I tried the recomposing tool to "shorten" it a bit:

Thanks for the kind words Bill - great job with the re-sizing. I tend to size mine with a 4x6 ratio just so that the images on my blog are the same size and don't look too messy (not messy, but non-uniform). I like the re-size.

It was a really good morning in the end - although I got bitten to pieces by the Mozzies... I managed a couple of non-bird shots too, which I posted in the nature forum:

Great results, well worth setting you alarm clock for the early morning wake-up.

I love both pix ... colors and timing ... the birds are like N rhythm ...

I loved it very much ...
