Superb capture of the female Blackbird from a nice low POV. Great focus on her lovely eye and very sharp details of the plumage. Fine colours too and well composed. We have one nesting in our hedge at the moment.
Let's hope our friends return again!
TFS and regards, Ulla
I am shocked. What has happened? It is so sad news.
However, shot is brilliant. I like it a lot. Great three-dimensional image with terrific quality.

Excellent picture Hilary.Good sharpness, POV, DOF and colours.
The bird looks quite forlorn- just like us.

A sad turn of events. One can only hope that these guys will return with their former vigour to this site, as they have been a valuable part of it.
This capture of a juvenile Blackbird is a fine tribute as it has the technical qualities, composition and POV that makes it first rate.
TFS and I hope you will continue to be active on TN!

Bu nekadar sevimli ve güzel bir kuş! Kompozisyon da kesinlikle mükemmel. Renkleri, keskinliği göz ve gaga detayları muhteşem. Elinize sağlık. Hüseyin
Will someone please tell me what is going on. Do you have Rob's email address? I'd like to contact him. I am so saddened by this!!

I feel the same as you and my heart isn't into critiquing. A beautiful Blackbird - some day maybe I'll get to see one. A lovely dedication to our friends who were among the most active and talented people on TN. Here's to better days.

It is only by reading yours and Selen's posts that I have become fully aware of what has happened. Fortunately I have Paul's mobile number so I can text him. This does feel like someone has hit the Red Button and gone nuclear over something that could be easily sorted out!!

Very strange things happened on TN last times... I think this site is on straight road to selfdestruction which is very sad news for members like me who really loved this place.
Even bird on your photo looks sad...

this is a excellent post and i just loved the notes,I liked the tight crop and the good eye contact you have managed to get,
the recent events have made everyone sad as we all loved TN and our TN friens very much,
I am taking break for a couple of weeks and hope to see your good work again when i come back,

A solitary subject in TN never evoked sad feelings in me, but today it is remarkably so for the things happening around here.
The bird is well captured with very a good catchlight and details on the plumage.the green habitat makes a fine contrast to the colour of the bird.
I hope life gets back to normal soon
Take care ...life is good:)

Hello Hilary. When my critiques privileges in TE and TN accounts were withdrawn, I was thinking as an isolated event. The notes written here gave me shivers. All of them are excellent photographers and frequently supporting my humble gallery. Excellent image and noble dedication. Warmest regards.

You are getting points because it is a beautiful shot :) I love the markings on the breast and the bright eye. Sharp with a great POV and a lovely composition
p.s. I miss Rob and Paul too :(

Sorry that I'm a little bit late for that picture, I had missed it.
This is a very touching picture of the female blackbird, the ideal picture do dedicate to all the nice members who had somme problems here on TN. It seems that things are going better now, and I noticed that most of them are back. Fortunately for us all!
Un grand merci
