My Dear Barbara,
Such a beautiful image. I told you that you have the eye for it.
I love the deep purple with the feathers of bright orange covering it. The trees in the foreground, I think, give a good sense of grounding and complete the photo nicely.
A very good showing for your very first, of many to come, photographs here on feed forward.
I will pass the link to some very good friends who will love to look at and comment about your work.
