Salut Alain
Belle capture du cardinal a poitrine rose.Bon pdv et image bien en focus avec de bon detail

Bonjour Alain,

La branche et les feuilles cadrent bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du cardinal à poitrine rose. la lumière de l'après-midi rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Alain,
Excellent photo of this Rose-breasted Grosbeak in beautiful natural colours and good sharpness. Very nice POV and composition.

Nice catch Alain. Good details and nice colors, it's a beautiful bird.
I saw the female here once, but only briefly.
Well done :)

Pretty capture! These birds are glorious in everyway, the naming couldn't be any better. Well composed. :)
