I present this capture not for the excellence of the picture but for the rarity of this bird on TN. We see that his beak is red, his legs to. I toke this picture aux Iles de la Madeline in the St-Laurent golf.
I hope that you will appreciate.
Thanks for looking

Salut Marie,
C'est la première fois que je vois ce type d'oiseau. J'aime bien son bec ouvert et la couleur rouge qui contraste avec l'aile blanche et les plumes noires. Je suis curieux de savoir sur quoi cet ouseau était? Était-ce une sorte de rocher? Si oui c'est d'une couleur assez spéciale.
Merci,

Claude

Bonjour Marie,

thank you for sharing and your effort!
greeting always
Tony

Bonjour Marie,
You did right to post this shot of a Black Guillemot, not only because it is rare on TN but because of the pose showing the bright red gape and the fine composition on the rocky habitat.
The softness and noise are acceptable in this context.
TFS and best wishes,
Ivan

Marie, Is it singing a song or just enjoying the weather. Lovely composition. Nice details. Ganesh

Salut Marie,
En effet, je ne crois pas avoir vu cet oiseau avant! Les îles regorgent d'espèces aviaires tellement variées. J'aime bien cette action capturée avec son bec rouge grand ouvert. La prise de vue et les couleurs sont très intéressantes. Je reconnais la texture de ces falaises de sable rouge... Merci!

Salut Marie,
Quel oiseau étrange! Je n'en ai jamais vu un pareil, même sur les sites d'oiseaux du Québec. Très bonne composition.
Bravo
Lise

Bravo Marie ! C'est toujours intéressant de découvrir de nouvelles espèces, photographié en conditions difficiles tu as su rapporter une bonne image de cet oiseau. Merci !

Mario

Bonsoir Marie,
Un oiseau qu'il ne connaissait pas, j'aime comme il est vu, comme sans défense et alarmé, en ouvrant son bout comme une petite menace. Document joli

Beautiful looking bird with the red bill standing out looking gorgeous. Very impressive sharpness and a fine pose you have captured here. This indeed is rare on TN. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Marie,

You did right to post the picture as those of us who are fascinated by wildlife always enjoy looking at rare and unusual shots or rare and unusual creatures. I certainly enjoyed the posting.

Thanks for sharing,

Mike

Hi Marie,
I do appreciate this upload as I can not remember ever seeing one of these birds when I lived in the east.It seems to me that you probably were near enough to this bird and the use of the extender, probably didn't need to be used.The extender stops down the aperture of your lens and also makes auto focus much harder to obtain and the field of view becomes more narrow,these things can work against getting good results even with a tripod.I like this photo and thanks for sharing it with us. Bob

Bonjour Marie, effectivement, très bonne idée de présenter cet oiseau, c'est une première sur TN je pense, jolie pose de l'oiseau avec son magnifique bec rouge grand ouvert, il est vrai que la photo a du bruit mais je suis quand même content de l'avoir vu, ca mérite donc un joli smiley tout vert,
merci et bonne journée,
Pat

Bonjour Marie,c'est vrai que cela vaut la peine d'être vu,merci pour ce partage
Mich

Very nice range of colours. Perfect focusing. Well captured, thank you.
Best wishes,
Achim

Hi Marie,
Never saw this bird!
Good captured moment. I like this shot because of the natural setting and the characteristic pose of the bird.
When I speak for myself, it is very difficult to registrate the blacks and whites of the feathers in the right way. Here you succeeded in doing that in an acceptable way, Perhaps the whites are a bit over-exposed.
Nevertheless a very good and unexpected pic of a rare specy.
Compliments Marie,
Regards, Ruud

bonjour Marie

tu as su prendre ta photo au bon moment

j'aime ce genre de photo où il y a un movement
même si ce mouvement ne serait que l'ouverture d'une bec

merci beaucoup pour cette photo d'oiseau d'eau ou de mer
