[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le Merle (French) is a common bird in france.
I'm doing some exercise with my new 100-400mm Canon lens, and it's not so easy! Even if you can take a shot far away, light become low very fast so speed decrease ...

Try, Try, Try ...

Great sharp photo of the Black Bird. The german name is "Amsel" and I loved their singing early mornings and late evenings when I was still in Austria. In my opinion they have the most beautiful singing from all the birds.

hi laurent,
you managed very well! :-)
beautiful shot, great pose and pov.
blackbirds maybe be common and in quite
large numbers but everytime a challenge
for the photographer.
good job & take care,

Very good picture with great angle, you did well with the black tones of the black bird feathers, good quality.

Hi Laurent
Very good picture with great POV.
Well don

Hi Laurent,
I would say you are getting the good with the new lens. This looks great. Spot on exposure has rendered some very nice colors. The detail in the plumage is very sharp. A nice low angle on this shot. Down near his level. Looks good!

great sharp details on this black bird, Thats hard to do, at least for me, great photo, TFS Kyle
