[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this is the same bird than yesterday(see yest's note)

from wikipedia:

It is from the French pomarin, shortening scientific Latin pomatorhinus, from Greek, meaning "having a covered nose". This refers to the cere—which the Pomarine Skua shares with the other skuas.

Bonjour Caroline,
A great portrait of this pommarine!
I like the close approach made and al the beautiful details got on the plumage and beak.
Very good the job done with the fill flash, ligting looks like very natural.
I like so much also the lights and colours seen at the background.
Felicitacions et merci du partager.
Mes amities,

Interesting bird. Not ideal what the focus is concerned, probably due to low light - but good nevertheless. Well done! Cheers, Klaus

nice bg, DOF just good for bill and face but parts of the eye OOF, but still very nice, as catchlight in the eye is saving the situation. Nice pose and great details in the plumage. Just perfect use of the flash as fill-in. Interesting note too

Hi Caroline.
So attractive pose and turn of the head of this cute bird. This time the BG is different and very colourful. I lie perfect framing and composition. Excellent job. TFS.

salut caroline,
the DOF is slightly too small,missing a touch of sharpness on its eye.
nevertheless a nice portrait with good POV and good use of light.
the composition seems to be more natural than the former one, for it's darker and coloured BG.(still prefer the 1st one)
merci - carole
