A perfect capture of this gorgeous little Flycatcher with a beautiful long tail! I really like its pose and details are very fine as are the colours. Amazing small red marking on the wing! A pleasant smooth background and well composed too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
I'm not a fan of these heavy frames, but the bird is superb. Fantastic sharpness, details, pose with eye-contact and natural colours. Beautiful OOF BG with a good DOF.

Amazing bird looks beautiful! The bg, sharpness and all the technicality is great too. Yes i would have preferred a natural perch but you can't obtain all the conditions as a human being and this photo is still a wonderful post!

A very good capture, excellent focus giving nice detail and clarity. Very good colours, I like the pose of the bird. This is the first time I've seen one of these. The perch is one of the things that nature throws at us, it dosn't distract from a very good picture of a splendid bird.
TFS, regards Bill
I can see why you were so impressed with this beautiful bird. The long tail is certainly attractive just in a sitting pose, so I can only imagine what it would have looked like in flight.
I have learned we have no control on where these guys decide to perch, so don't worry about the fence post. The bird shows wonderful detail and gorgeous natural colors. I really like the blurred BG . Super image!! Very informative notes!

What a tail indeed. Very posh and swanky! And the bird is a show-off as well, a real poser. Just look at the way its head is tilted as if it is giving you a message saying: is it ok like this? A very pleasant image of a very beautiful bird. Lovely in every way! Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Ps. Thanks to your frequent visits to my portfolio lately. It is always great to see what your thoughts are about my postings.
I love birds photo but I have not such equipment to capture hence I calculate others focal lenth i.e. 300x1.6x1.4=672mm as the f/4 changes to f/5.6 so you have a nice gear for long distance shots like 672mm f/5.6, it is beautifully composed and focused, TFS.

En voici une de queue pour un passereau! Magnifique. Je n'ai jamais vu cet oiseau (faut dire que j'habite en Europe!)!
Merci pour ce partage

impressing Flycatcher perfectly captured in most pleasantly dim light, and presented in a very elegant style! Looking very lively and fresh. Don't worry about the perch - I do find it attractive in its matter-of-fact documentary way: nature is just taking possession of humans' belongings. Thank you!
Thank you also for your very kind and refreshing words to my last week's woodpecker :)
With best regards,

Le poteau aide au cadrage de l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs du tyran à longue queue. L'image est claire et précise. la qualité de la lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
