I never would have guessed this was the same bird! Lovely capture in a pretty pose. He has a nice face and you show us the details well.


Lovely presentation, but very noisy. In my WS tried to improve a bit

I like the composition really well. Think it was a sunny day because you have a light blue sky. It makes a good background. Sharpness, pose of bird, catchlight in eye are all very good.

Hi Michel,
excellent clarity and nice soft blue background. The texture of the trunk is so detailed and the sharpness of the bird is so impressive. i like this diagonal composition of the branch.
well presented in excellent beauty.
