[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Dunnock
Prunella modularis
L'accenteur mouchet.

It is a small passerine bird found throughout temperate Europe and into Asia. It is a resident in the milder west and south of its range, but as an insectivore, must migrate south from the colder parts of its range. The sexes are similarly coloured. Chicks within broods often have different fathers. Polyandry is rare in birds.

Common bird but a nightmare for me to photograph as they are most of the time within a bush. This one was nice enough to pose for me above the bush.

No PP work.

Thanks for looking

Bonjour Jean Marie,

Intéressant POV son choix. BG attraper cette clarté fantastique et trčs haut et les détails.
Passez une bonne journée,

Bonjour Jean-Marie,
Nice capture of the dunnock, great lights, tones and blurred background, but I found the focus a very little soft on the bird's head. Otherwise a splendid photo. You're lucky to capture this species - I didn't manage to, 'til now. Tfs.
Best regards from Hungary, László

Hello JeanMarie,
Beautiful photo of this Dunnock. I got a pair in my garden whole year long. They are very busy birds, not easy to take a good photo of them. This one is very good in excellent sharpness and natural colours. Great composition.
