Interesting looking bird. I think I could evaluate your shot better if you sent me the lens for a couple of weeks though.

Wow, great shot. I like it very much, the framing is very good, and I like the detail on the bird. Very well done!

Looks like I could use that lens, but it will cost some $$.....

A beautiful shot. The foreground and background bokeh make this bird stand out even more. So well done, it has aesthetic appeal as well being a great nature shot.

Excellent photo. The OOF areas in the fore and backgrounds work very well to isolate the bird. Looks like you have a winner of a lens and a winner of a shot. Looking forward to more.
