Sometimes I just want friends to see a bird I photographed, no rules.

That brings up an interesting point. If the photo wasn’t so artistic, I wouldn’t have thought twice about giving it a 4. Do people think it’s a 4 or 5?

Mid 4 from me. If the birds head was like its shoulders it would be an easy five for me.

Not casting stones but most people on here are documentary photographers, not artistic.  Nothing wrong with that because it does help people identify species.  However if you watch the evolution of photographers they start out only shooting BOAS and cropped heavily and then slowly starting shooting scenes.  So for me the flowers set a mood and tell a story and I would print it and hang it on the wall, long before a tack sharp BOA.

Vaux pronounced his name like “Fox,”so this bird's name should be said like "foxes" "
