[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After Many day's of rain I was able to go back to the field yesterday & today.I had the chance to capture that lovely bird that I beleive to be a Eastern - Wood -Pewee and do not hesitated to correct me if I'm wrong I'm not an expert.In case I'm right I got some information from Audubon Field Guide :
Eastern Wood-Pewees are more often heard than seen because of their dull coloration and because they frequent the dense upper canopy ot the forest.

Hi Michel,
A beautiful capture of this bird!
It's very good your same level POV and the pose catcehd.
I like so much all the clear and sharp details got on the plumage, it has so beautiful colours on it.
I think you chieved a nicely blurred background with the DOF, that stands up the subject.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Beautiful shot Michel! Nicely composed and a great blurry BG make this a keeper.

Hi Michael,

Seems as if we are all having problems with ID's this weekend. Pewee or not - this is gorgeous. The bird is perfect and his pose on that branch is also. Fine details - even a sparkle in his eye. Beautiful setting and bg.

Hi Michel,
I think you identified the bird correctly (I did some research).
Your picture is perfect; I like it even more because it shows a bird never posted before on TN. For me this makes a big difference and I think people should pay more attention on species, not only on quality of the pictures. (ex: I posted a Scarlet Tanager recently with no comments!)
Again very good shot.
TFS, Mario.

Hello Michel,
Very good shot great colors and sharpness nice BG,
