[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
El cenzontle o sinsonte (Mimus polyglottos)

La palabra cenzontle viene del náhuatl cenzon-tlahtol-e, formado de centzontli ("cuatrocientos") y tlahtolli ("palabra" y, por extensión, "canto"). Esto se debe al canto del ave en cuestión. De hecho los machos experimentados tienen repertorios de 50 a 200 canciones; y razón por la cual, su nombre científico es Mimus polyglottos, porque polyglottos, en latín significa "muchas lenguas".

El tlatoani de Texcoco, Nezahualcóyotl hizo el siguiente poema donde habla sobre la belleza del cenzontle:

"Amo el canto del cenzontle,
pájaro de cuatrocientas voces;
amo el color del jade y el enervante perfume
de las flores;
pero amo más a mi hermano
el hombre."


Saludos

Hello Luis.
Beautiful closed up and well composed image.Excellent pov and fantastic pose from this bird.Great detail and natural colors
Best regards Siggi

Hola Luis, por aqui estamos de medio insomnio jeje. Gracias por tu comentario.

Tu foto casi es insultante -en el buen sentido de la palabra- ya que "canta" entre el resto de las fotografías también entre 50 y 400 veces jaja. Te felicito por tu buen hacer.
Pues no destacaría nada en ella a la vez que todo, y eso significa que rezuma realismo por los cuatro costados. Cierto que usas buena lente, pero yo también la uso y muchacho (que dicen los cubanos) no es fácil...

Un abrazo y felicidades por tu maestría.

Hola Luis,
this beautiful passerine bird is first to me. you greatly captured it with great sharp focus and against blurred BG of sky. eyes contact, POV, exposure and diagonal composition also great. gracias y saludos amigo

Hola Luis,
Un ave hermosa! de primer momento la confundí con nuestras "paraulatas llaneras" (Mimus gilvus)... pero la similitud es solo en el plumaje.
Excelente enfoque y unas texturas perfectamente apreciables. Es muy loable el balance de luz logrado contra ese trafondeo de color incomodo; lo mismo digo para el contraste. Muy buen trabajo!
Saludos, Feliz fin de semana y muchas gracias por postear!

Hallo my friend Luis in Mexico
What a delightful image of this "Mimus polyglottos". It has such a lot of beautiful qualities and how well did you capture those for us to see and appreciate! Although this bird does not have bright colours it surely is a very elegant and stylish bird and it certainly has a very proud pose. It also seems to be very photogenic, or is it the excellent photographer that made it all possible for us to believe it to be so. Great photography which I cannot find any fault with, but only sing praises. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Hi Luis,
my bird friend from Mexico on my screen again! One more of your truly perfect bird portraits, this time a species I knew back in Texas, the Mocking bird. You might know that Charles Darwin collected Mocking bird species from several islands of Galápagos and, when he compared them, came up with an idea for speciation. The Darwin finches however confused him.
Have a nice weekend,
Dietrich

Hi Luis,

Sorry i've missed this exceptional post. Very high quality work of this pretty Mimus, showing its excellence in a fine pose. The DOF, exposure, colours and composition are all wonderful MF!
TFS and have a nice day!
Cheers,

Bayram
