I am pleased to watch your new picture. It is so difficult subject for shooting but you managed to exposure the scene perfectly. Even dark colour tones of the bird feathers are reproduced very well. Very attractive scene and perfectly composed picture. Sky is looked through the twigs nicely. My best wishes and compliments.

You have a lovely sharp shot of Mr Blackbird here...This might sound strange but I rarely see one in a tree..I always seem to see them on the ground..His eye and beak are perfectly captured..They are not an easy bird to capture in the light you have due to the Blackness of him!!..You have posted a super picture and a really informative note.

this is is a fine portrait of this Blackbird!
We've got a nesting pair in my garden and they're always singing and chirping! You also know when the cat is in the garden because the two Blackbirds go crazy making that "Chat" sound over and over again :-)
Nice pose and a good POV.
Great clarity and detail.
Well done Hil,

The bill and eye-ring on this male Blackbird are really a striking orange rather than yellow. He must be in his prime! You have certainly made a good capture of him up in the tree while he is looking at you with good eye contact. The sharpness and composition against a blue sky make this a very fine image and thanks for sharing it,

Lovely shot of this Blackbird in classic pose. They are such pretty birds and you have shown this one off to great effect, with nice detail in the black feathers and a lovely glint in his eye. Well done.

A lovely capture of this blackbird.
The eye ring detail is wonderful,well exposed with lovely vivid colours.
The plumage detail is excellent.
Well placed in the frame,the eye contact is very good.
These birds resemble our American Robin,(Turdus migratorious).
