I like how this blends in with the background. Its amazing the tricks nature comes up with to protect life. Great job. Wished there had been a catchlight in the bird's eye. Other than that, much better than anything I've done yet. Keep up the great work.
Please give me a compelling reason t look at this photograph. It's sharp and well exposed but I don't have a reason to come back to it and look at it over and over, which is the reason we make photographs; to communicate ideas.
Truthfully speaking there is nothing special about this photo, for me it's just a photo of a bird. Try taking photos that have never been seen, from different perspective or anything that will truly make a photo unique.
Agree with both Nathan and Anatoliy,
it's a very common type of bird shot from a very ordinary POV which looks quite drab against the back ground.
Have a look at some of these shots below for comparison
