A decent background, catch lights in the eyes, limited distractions and an active stance by the subject. You cannot ask for much more. Many articles I’ve read speak about totally clear backgrounds, no distractions whatsoever. It is possible to get these kinds of shots in the wild, but it’s rare; more frequently they are taken at feeders or created in Photoshop. Now I did clean up some of the background and I worked on the eyes in one photograph. I also removed one branch. These are the subtle changes that give some photographs more coherence.
