Salut Michel,ma quelle beaute' !!! Une photo vraiment exceptionelle,le moment de prise est parfait et les couleurs sont incroyables,ms plus gros compliments,un petite oeuvre artistique,Luciano

Hello Michel! What a wonderful point of view! An excellent study, and a very skillfully taken shot! Extraordinary! TFS! Linda

Hi Michel, Beautiful image of this Waxwing though it is a Bohemian Waxwing I believe. I see no pale yellow abdomen and the russet/orange forehead and rear is of the Bohemian. I like how you got it with it's beak open and about to devour the crab apple. Great color and detail. Nicely composed as well.

Seems to be eating a little too much, or getting ready for winter. Either way, this is a nice photo, and wow do those cherries look good, hope you had one :-) Cheers Josh Lewis.

hi Michel,
very nice capture of very beautiful Waxwing at feeding time. Nicely composed and framed. Sharpness, details and coloration also nice. I removed branch made shadow by WS. I hope you will like it. Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Hello Michel,

Yes it's Cedar Waxwing time again.
Love to see all those beautiful images of this lovely bird again.
This one is no exception.
Wonderful colors, clarity and details.
Pity there is an out of focus twig in the background, but it does'nt effect the beauty of the image to much.
Lovely shot with the bird throwing aberry in to it's throat.
Very well done. TFS!!!

Best regards, Harry

Hi Michel, excellent timing to capture this Cedar Waxwing eating the cherries, not only did you catch him with his mouth full but he was just in the process of popping it. The colour in this shot is fabulous with excellent saturation found on the bird himself and the cherries still on the tree. Exposure is very good, even with this difficult white background, giving us excellent detail on the bird. Very nicely done.

Thanks, John

Bonjour Michel,
Quelle belle prise, magnifique composition, l'action est superbe, les couleurs sont parfaites de même queles détails.

Bonjour Michel,

Cet oiseau sur la branche qui mange un fruit est impressionnant. Le sujet est bien cadré. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'oiseau. La photo est claire et précise. Bonne journée.

Salut Michel! Superbe photo du Jaseur! Excellente pose, image bien cadrée et exposition réussie! Bravo et merci!


Hello Michel,
Super capture of the moment!
The berries are great source of food for some of the birds during snowy season, but I'm surprised to see there still are some left as late as April...
I also like to take this opportunity to thank you for support and advice!
It has been great and I have learned a lot through the many fine presentations in TrekNature!
Pablo -

Wow! De toute évidence, j'ai manqué cette superbe photo. J'ai eu la chance de voir cet oiseau qu'une seule fois et le temps gris ne m'a pas permis de prendre une si belle photo. La vitesse d'obturation était parfaite pour bien figer l'action. Ils sont tellement beaux avec leurs belles couleurs, bravo!
