Thanks Shelley,

I did not really bother to photoshop away the branches, etc., but now as you said it I might fiddle with it a bit. Tomorrow,

Thanks Fons,

I accidentally deleted your first comment.

This is the first time I used flash on birds. It does look like a portrait a bit, but there is some obvious highlights detail loss on the bottom feathers due to overexposure. With birds, as you know it, you hardly get a second chance. I think I better stay away from flashes in future.

Very nice shot Sergey, this picture is my favorite from the serie "Street Birds. I like how the little bird is placed on the slender and fragile branch. I am agree with Shelley about the left branch is a little distracting. I like how you used the flash, I think the overexposure in the feathers almost imperceptible.
