Hello Michel,
Awesome shot of one of my favorite springtime birds to view up at Magee Marsh. You have captured this fellow perfectly, allowing us to see his gorgeous plumage in vivid yet natural colors. Wonderful eye contact with nice catchlight. Love the attractive composition and blurred BG. I would certainly like to visit Pointe Pelee someday. Great image!!

Bonjour Michel,
Quelle beauté ce Loriot aux couleurs vives. Une apparition printanière, à voir la date de ta photo. Bon cadrage aussi.
Chez nous les loriots sont plutôt rares et difficiles à voir.
Bonne journée

Bonjour Michel,

La branche cadre bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir avec précision les détails et les couleurs de l'Oriole de Baltimore. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hello Michel,
Fantastic picture, very nice BG, excellent sharpness and colors, perfect POV.
Congratulations and good weekend.
