Bonjour Jeanpaul,
Ravie d'être ta voisine! Et tu nous montres un joli Durbec des sapins qui a l'air de dormir ou de prendre un bain de soleil! Adorable! Une image avec une présentation spéciale, pas trop classique, j'aime bien.
Bonne semaine!

Hi Jean-Paul.
I welcome you with wonderful picture. Combination of sunlight and shadows, as well as details/sharpness of the branches and cute bird and blurriness of the BG is ultimate. Superb 3D-image of a lovely scene. Bravo.

bonjour Jean Paul

la luminosité de l'image et les tons de couleurs du plumage
de l'oiseau sont superbes, également la netteté et les détails
sont excellents, dans les livres ils disent qu'il faut laisser
une espace devant le sujet ici l'oiseau, mais dans cette photo
j'aime beaucoup que l'espace est derrière l'oiseau, TFS

Hi Jeanpaul,
nicely captured bird in its sleeping pose. Very sharp and very well detailed. the wings are seen in good streak of colours.
Lighting is marvellous as the leaves are seen so pretty too.

A bientôt.
