Hi Michel,

Another lovely bird I have not seen. You caught him very nicely in a sweet position - I like the way he is tilting his head. Nice colors and details with a twinkle in his eye. A beautiful composition and background.

Hello Michel

Well done on this Eastern Kingbird.I find them to be quite shy and difficult to get near.The ones that sit on fence posts around here always fly about 5 more fence posts down the line as you get to with in shooting distance.The focus and details are very good,with lovely rich colours of the surrounding foliage.Wonderful lighting and I like the pose with the inquisitive look.Very nicely done.TFS


hi michel,
very nice shot, sharp image, you got a very good pose here, nice pov, very good dof, the plant at the fg makes the shot look better,
tfs & regards

Hi Michel,
He seems to be quite interested in you, trying to get what you are doing :o) The pose you captured is very cute and I liked the catchlight in the eye. TFS

Hi Michel,
I love the cute pose of this bird. I think it was watching you take the photograph.
A little burnt out on the whites, a touch of underexposure may have sorted this out.
Lovely bird,
Well seen,
