A very nice capture, Michel.
I really like his pose... with his legs crossed and his head slightly turned.
Great eye contact.
The details are very sharp, and the subject is shown in his natural habitat.
Merci pour le partage. : )

This is a nicely detailed photo Michel.Good lighting and good surroundings for the POV.

Bonjour Michel,

Jolie photo dont j'aime particulièrement la "mise en scène" avec une ouverture à droite qui prolonge le mouvement de l'oiseau.
C'est très naturel et beau.
Merci pour le partage.

HI Michel
nice capture, very sharp, natural colours.

Hi Michel, lovely walking bird with wonderful colors, great details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Michel , good composed and well exposured and good saturated colors , TFS and good luck.

Hello Michel,

This is wonderful! A great picture that was composed perfectly following the rule of thirds! I love how you placed the bird along the left third of your picture allowing for plenty of empty space in front of it. The water makes a great background and isolates the Yellowleg perfectly. From a chromatic POV, I just love the contrast between the yellow color of the legs and the blueish color tones in the water.
The exposure was controlled very well and focus well achieved to creat a sharp image with outstanding details and very good DOF. You captured good catchlights in the bird's eye too! Well done! Thank you!

With Friendly Regards,

Salut Michel,

Belle photo, très clair et nette, belle lumière et arrière plan qui mette en valeur le sujet. Merci pour le partage. Dan
