This photograph stood out the most out of your stack of deviations in my inbox. I adore how vibrant the complementary colors are. I'm also really amazed with the technical aspect of the photograph too. I would have never figured that the Nikon D3000 can take such crisp shots. I can see every detail around the bird's eye and even the tiniest bristles of feathers. The shallow depth of field also painted a nice green background. Your new 300mm zoom lens brings a lot of bang for the buck.
I can confidently say that this photograph will be in your top 5 of all time for a while. The only thing wrong with this shot is that I'm not the one who took it. Bravo!
