Absolutely spot on - composition, subtle soft but deep colours and that beautiful touch of backlight coming through the wings

Thank you, not bad for an old consumer zoom lens that cost less than 40! That Tamron lens always delivers.

Some of the prettiest bokeh I've seen lately, providing suitable contrast with the charmingly backlit subject. Agree with you David about the 70-300. It's one of the first lenses I bought, and I have always been impressed with its light weight, inexpensive cost, and of course with its ability to capture quality images. Like this one a whole lot.

Hardest thing about that image is where and how to crop- if at all. It's just so full of natural beauty. Thank you for sharing it.

As much as like being a contrarian, David, on this occasion I'm going to follow dutifully the others and express my unadulterated praise for the magical quality of this image
