Wonderful colours, excellent sharpness and splendid details. Beautiful and harmonious composition. The technical quality of this shot of this Pine Grosbeak is extraordinary I like the way of the pose showing its profile and the back of the plumage. The background displays well on this photo. Lovely presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Mario, what a fantastic shot of this pine Grosbeak! Superbe photo, quelle est belle. Le gris du plumage de l'oiseau se confond à l'arrière-plan et le rouge est semblable aux petites pousses de la branche. C'est une magnifique photo Mario, tu es un grand photographe! Merci!

What a splendid capture of this Grosbeak in fine pink colours that stand out against the snowy background. I like its pose too on the thin spruce branches. Excellent sharpness and a beautiful composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

A wonderful shot of this Grosbeak showing off his face, wings and plummage. I love his expression - he looks deep in thought. Excellent colors and details. This is another bird I would love to see in real life. Guess I have to go back to Canada - but not in the winter.

Its such a pity that we don't have these birds in Holland. I'm a bit jealous I hope you don't mind. This shot is very clear and sharp and the pose is superb. The combination of red, black and grey is so fantastic.Incredible capture.

Great color, clarity and POV over an OOF BG. As if the bird was turning around to pose for you :) Overall a great composition.

Fantastic bird but more important is the boreal forest..some feel this high latitude forest is even more important in ways than the Amazon Rainforest...and it certainly is larger. the tree made a perfect perch for the bird. Super shot and enlightening notes!

Unlimited series of outstanding bird pictures. This one is intermediate point, amazing point. Reproduction of all even tiniest details of the scene impress the imagination. It is fantastic. All is superb: exposure (despite the contest subject), vibrant colours (in spite of soft light), sharpness and details of the bird and twig, and composition of the picture. My congratulations and many thanks.

Hi Mario, I have never seen one of these Pine Grosbeaks, though I think everyone else in Quebec and Ontario have. I am obviously looking in the wrong areas. This one of yours is awesome with excellent colour and detail. I especially like the blending of the colour in that plumage. Very nice clear pose.

Ce Durbec des sapins sur la branche semble figer sur place. Les détails et les couleurs de l'oiseau sont clairs et précis. Le sujet est bien cadré. La lumière rehausse les couleurs. Bonne journée.
