Hello Annick,
A great capture of a Kurrichane Thrush taken from a fine POV and set in a pleasing composition. The technical aspects are excellent, only the wings being blurred because he is shaking them. The OOF busy BG helps to make the thrush stand out.
TFS this beauty,
Ivan

Hi Annick,

A wonderful Thrush - a bird I have only seen in pictures. I love the pose showing off the moving wings. Beautiful colors and superb details of the face and plummage. Excellent background and a nice composition on the branch.

Hi Annick.
What a pictorial scene and surroundings of a fine and funny a bit bird. Impressive dry branch creates a very nice framework of the image. It is clear image of the bird is wonderful. You managed to reflect an attractive moment and pose of the bird. Even some blurriness of the wings is natural and suitable for BG, As usual details and sharpness of the main parts of the image as well as colours and 3D-effect are great. Well done and best wishes.
