Hey Steaphany! You need a another mirror behind the feeder
From a quick play it looks as if there is a lot more colour and detail available of the feathers in the shaded area; its nice in itself, but also seems to give a balance to the image which is slightly dominated by the beak showing it was taken from a long way off.....then finally crop it to square??

The problem of that shooting session was actually too many Hummies, there were nearly constant squabbles as birds would chase off each other.
For me, this meant that I had to aim and focus on one spot and hope that I bird would pause long enough to get a shot.
