[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I just came back from a dream trip from Pointe Pelée which is consider as one of the top ten place in Noryh America for bird photography.But you have to keep in mind that even if the potential of seeing many different species are present a lot of walking ,and patience are required to see them.Local people from the area are fantastic,food is also excellent.Many outstanding photographer including Arthur Morris were presentéSo I now intend to show you a few pictures from my trip,I will start with that one were I'm not ot sure of the specie ,your help will be appreciated for that one.Thank for looking.

Very eloquent capture of this bird with its catch, Michel.
The way you have captured the eyes of the bird is something unique and wonderful.
Needless to say, your trip to this bird haven was really fantastic.
Looking forward to more from the trip.

It is looking at you directly with food in its mouth as if to ask if you have any problems with eating insects:-) A true Survivor eh? Tres bien...all is well in your bird world..

Hi Michel,

If this is an example of your shots from Pointe Pelee you have a lot of threats in store for us. This little bird with the big insect in his beak is wonderful as he stares right at you. Beautiful colors, excellent details, marvelous pose, lovely background and a super composition.

Hello Michel,
A superb capture taken from a great almost frontal POV to show the features of this Yellow-throated Vireo (Your ID is correct) with fine colours and clarity against a pleasing dark OOF natural BG.
Unfortunately I did not manage to visit Pointe Pelée when I was in Ontario years ago.
Thanks and look forward to seein your other shots from the trip,

Bonjour Michel,

Ce viréo à gorge jaune sur la branche est impressionnant. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'oiseau qui semble regarder le photographe. Le flou de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'oiseau. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
