I like how well you pulled off this unusual framing of this guy's face. The light in the eye looks fabulous and there is so much attractive detail of his bill and the delicate feathers on his face. Looks gorgeous!

I love the shape and coloration of their bills and this one shows it off beautifully. A nice tight shot with a great eye and fantastic colors.

I really like the close and personal approach Donna, and also how lovely the light is falling on the Flamingo's head. The perfectly blurred background also makes the bird stand out in an excellent way.

Your focus is spot on and sharp showing such clear and well defined details in every part of the head, and the exposure is perfect.

The tight cropping is working well and the head of the Flamingo has got a very good placement within the frame. Indeed a lovely and well taken photo, and with an excellent DOF.
