Another wonderful capture from you, my friend!
The details in the plumage of this lovely bird are superb here and the contrast and lighting are impeccably well managed. His colors show through perfectly. Nice sharp details, good pose, and a wonderful BG.
Best regards Siggi

I like the very nice light that you have captured in this photo. Moreover there are very fine reflections of the light in bird's plumage. Image is very sharp showing excelent details of plumage's pattern. The sharp image of the bird stays very nice against the blurry background.
Thank you for sharing,

Although the BG is a bit busy, the Starling at itself is perfect. Sharpness, colours and details are splendid. Very pleasant composition and POV.
Have a good weekend too,

At times the patterns and colours show up so wonderfully - I wondered if it was their breeding colours.
Superb capture Nick. He is so sharp and the colours and patterns show up so well

Another beautiful capture of this Starling. The details of the face, wings and plummage are magnificent. Wonderful colors - I love the irridescent green on the breast. An excellent pose with the bird standing out very well from the background.

Superb sharpness and great ligting allow this Starling to be shown at his best in his winter plumage and the blurred BG sets him off well.
I can even see what looks like a red parasitic tick in his nostril!
This this fine image,
Have a good weekend,

This one has a nicely balanced look in its colours Nick. I like this bird. Through you and Mario I find it growing on me...but I am not sure if we have any such thing here..

Isn't it amazing that these black birds get so beautiful with their irising colours in winter! Superb, Nick, the light is beautiful and the background colours recall the bird's feathers, it is very harmonious and nicely composed too. Thank you!

I have small series of the shots of this species. However, I have not any similar. It is fantastic picture of a beautiful bird with terrific reproduction of all its attractive details and features. Colours, sharpness, lights cannot be better. Even busy BG cannot
distract attention from main hero. Bravo. Amazing work.
