Hello Patrick,
You capture the bird in a fine moment, I like this pose!
Image is well composed, and the blue background works well with the birds...
As you say sharpness could be better, maybe a tripod can help out when you're using the 350 mm...

Hi Patrick,
This is a nice shot, nice colours and pov. Your right the sharpness is not super as you say and Pablo is right a tripod would be helpful. A good photo,

Salut Patrick,
C'est un plaisir de revoir une de tes photos :) C'est une belle capture de cet oiseau avec une belle prise de vue, une bonne exposition, composition et un superbe contraste avec ce beau BG bleu. Tu as saisis une belle lumière dans son œil. Je trouve les détails un petit peu flous et je me demande pourquoi car tu avais une bonne vitesse et ouverture. C'est comme si le sujet aurait bougé un peu mais ce n'est qu'un infime détail :) Bravo et à la prochaine,
