Hi Michel,

Beautiful shot of this cute little House Finch. Wonderful to catch him with his mouth full. Nice pose on the diagonal branch. Lovely natural colors and excellent details.

Bonjour Michel,
Une admirable photo, dynamique, belle composition, couleurs vives, détails nets, point de vue impeccable. Pour le cadrage, j'aurais coupé juste 5% à droite, mais ce n'est qu'une question de goût.

Bonsoir Michel, quelle belle photo, on voit bien les détails de l'oiseau et j'adore la petite graine de tournesol dans son bec. Les couleurs sont belles et les branches derrière l'oiseau, en arrière-plan, forment un rayonnement dynamique, c'Est très beau. Merci!

Hello Michel,
Fine capture of a Housefinch with a sunflower seed capsule in its beak in a nice pose, from a fine POV and in a excellent composition. The lighting and OOF BG set it off well.
TFS,
Ivan

Hi Michel,
Crystal clear image. POV and composition are great. This picture is special because the House Finch was captured with a kind of seed in the mouth. The blurred background created 3D effect and isolated the House Finch nicely.

Bonjour Michel,

Ce roselin familier sur la branche qui mange est impresionnant. La prise de vue donne la possibilité de voir les détails et les couleurs de ses plumes. Le sujet est bien cadré. Bonne journée.
