[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From trip to Texas at Laguna Seca Ranch.

Dapper in looks and cheerful in song, the Pyrrhuloxia is a tough-as-nails songbird of baking hot deserts in the American Southwest and northern Mexico. They’re closely related to Northern Cardinals, but they are a crisp gray and red, with a longer, elegant crest and a stubby, parrotlike yellow bill. During breeding season Pyrrhuloxias are fiercely and vocally territorial, but in the winter they forget their disputes and join together in large foraging flocks.

Hello Peter,
Was taken in the wild? What wonderful sharpness, colours and composition. The combination of photographer, 600mm and tripod did a marvellous job. Sheer pleasure to view.

Bonjour Peter,
Une belle attitude du sujet et une bonne profondeur de champ mais surtout une très belle lumière qui fait resplendir de délicates couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Sharp; good compo.
The background is for once a bit too soft for my taste.
