As I've read what :devtimbereclips: had to say about this epic shot, I wholeheartedly agree. The browns and reds that compliment the overall photo are nicely captured, though a little vibrant adjustment to make them pop from everything else would suffice an even better photo.
Might I also suggest angling your shots? This specific one is amazing, but as a photographer, you have the world as your canvas. Exploring subjects as small as a bird, or as big as a mountain through different perspectives of the lens is a generous approach to enable the viewer to understand your surroundings.
In short, I wonder what makes this bird so calm? What is so special about the location he's at? At this point, what is distinguishing you two from being face to face...more branches? A nearby bird house? Your front window? or a fountain? I'll never know based on this shot, it's a vague understanding.
Aside from your message being told through an image, just enjoy photographing and take it to a new level. If you have any questions or need anymore clarification of anything I've explained, just let me know.
