Dag Annick.
Daar moet je toch goed bij kijken hoe het allemaal zit. Mooie foto van een mooi vogeltje. Ik vind de achtergrond er erg mooi bij passen.

Nice photo. It isn't European Starling. It,s maybe Fielfare.

Hi Annick,
Nice shot of this cute bird ;o) Well composed and excellent details, POV and DOF. TFS.

Hello Annick

Very good POV and DOF.The details in the breast plumage is outstanding.The colours are well saturated,and the OOF BG is lovely.Nicely composed.It looks similar to a baby robin over here,which is in the thrush family.TFS

bonjour annick
le POV est bien choisit et place agreablement l'oiseau devant un BG vert flou a souhait.
le piqué est bon sur l'ensemble de l'oiseau,un peu plus de profondeur aurait permit d'avoir la queue dans le champs peu etre!

Hi Annick,
Beautiful capture of the starling with a blurry BG.
Colors and details are marvellous.

Hello Annick!
I almost overlooked this pictre :)
Very funny pose and good quality details make this picture really nice :)
But I belive that this is not a typical pose for this bird (please note how its leg looks like). Is it hurt or something?
Best greeting,

PS. Just an idea to your earlier pictures - maybe it would be nice to make a new theme? Like Portraits of birds? I really liked your goose photos :)

Hola Annick,
bella captura,
y disparo excelente,
maravilloso bg.
genial plumaje de este baby.

Hi Annick,
It looks like a Thrush to me and an injured one at that. Probably a cat has had hold of it. Good picture of this distressed bird.

Hi Annick,
Nice dof and bg. I like the square format.

Hello Annick,
Fine capture of a Song Thrush fledgeling (not a starling). Most of it is nice and sharp with a good bokeh BG. fine colours and lighting.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

are you sure this is actually a starling ?
I think the beak is sharper, and the spots are usually white on a dark background... could it be a thrush ?? (une grive in french ?)
Anyways, nice picture of this young bird. TFS !

Edit : check this one out to compare the plumage

Nice pose and excellent sharpness where needed.
