Unfortunately he was not successful at getting the peanut. However, a crow was able to eventually grab it, and polish it off.

You could have at least cracked it for him.  :p

You always seem to get a background with colours complementary to the bird itself. Well done.

I missed focus on the head but I'll blame that on the boat moving around.

Thank you. I live rural so grasses or a trees canopy is often the background.

Heavy crop and bad light so IQ is not so good, but I like the action.
