Over-analysis ... this crowd ... surely not.
Actually, I had the same perspective at the smaller branches "pushing us back up" as the subject leads us downward. In that regard, they serve the composition to keep us from running out of the frame. This is probably one of my fav's from the series.
So its interesting to have you confirm Bob's thoughts about the branches.
Debated various crops.
I am pleasantly surprised that this is one of your fav's. But overly self-critical analysis is one of my traits.
I do love the oddness of this bird and have tried, in vain, to spot one, then capture an image for the last couple of years of Florida trips. They are not that common and have always been afar, except one occasion in Delray. And there the light was terrible, the backgrounds terrible, etc etc.
Doesnt hurt to hook up to a $7000+ rig.
And you should see the prices on the new Canon 200-400 +1.4, the old and the new 500 f4
Both birder's dreams.
