Thank you, guys, for the kind comments.
Philip Lanoue: Is this a wild or captive bird?
Sorry for getting back to you so late. Yes it was a captive bird (how else a wild bird would be photographed that close at 250mm otherwise?). However, I travelled to Denali, Alaska to get this shot.There is an old thread about it: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/41979305Thank you for the comment,SG
The Mick: What kind of flower is that? Nice title, BTW.
You are absolutely right. It is Flame Lily. I shot it about a month ago in Penang Botanical Garden. Malaysia. Thank you for your interest.
It is Lady Baltimore. The captivity bird from the Mt. Roberts shelter in Juneau, AK. Am I right? She was shot in a beak and an eye. I have a nice close ups of her too.
AlexandruValeanu: great image
Brilliant! It lacks composition and technical quality due to P&S camera, but still brilliant :-)
Five Piece: Well deserved win! Love the colors, the textures, and the composition.
Very good capture with shore line background. Congratulations, Arijit.

Thank you for your comment. I'm very surprised actually with the 2nd place here. There were leftovers from 2009 Christmas season fajita cooking.
Nice shot. What is the technique?
It reminds me a macro of butterfly wings, and I kind of like it.
It's really great image. Simple, but elegant and sophisticated. Congratulations.SG
Thank you. And sorry for the delay. I just opened it to see voting results and there is your comment.
Great image. Very artistic. Is it diluted watercolor paints?
