Fine close capture of a Carolina Chikadee in a good pose and from an excellent POV. It stands out well against the blurred tree BG and it is well composed.
Best regards, Siggi

Another nice bird caught nearby your tap :-) Very interesting specie, quite different from more common tits. I like its pose with wide opened beak. Pity that we can't hear its song.

Preciosa Alexei... siempre son halagos mis comentarios a tus fotografías pero es lo que siento.
En esta aprecio unos colores algo "pastosos" en algunas zonas, especialmente en la cara del ave, pero el resto es de gran realismo y una buena luz.
Un abrazo y gracias por tus comentarios:

Magnificent, as always. This Carolina Chikadee is beautiful. The details and colors of the face, eye, wings and plumage are excellent. The pose is priceless. He seems to be yelling at you to turn on the water. I love it!!!

I wonder if we can get its mouth open any further. The bird and the metal faucet or in well sharp. I think this gives a true meaning to the way the bird interacts with the human.

Your country is not as hot as mine, Alexei. Yet it is heart-breaking to see birds looking so very thirsty in your country too at this time of the year.
The image is superb in terms of its technical excellence and thematic significance.
with your powerful zoom lens, you have created a life-like image of this bird slaking its thirst at your water source in the garden.

beautiful capture of this bird. Well taken in special moment. chirping her throat out.
Very sharp and very clear.
Another fine image that you kept in your archives!
This time the thirsty species in question is a juvenile Great Tit (Parus major)that has not yet gained its more striking adult plumage, but you can just see the vertical black breast stripe.
Excellent sharpness, lighting and composition with the leaking tap against a fine neutral BG.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Excellent shot, with a nice expression of this thirsty bird, and perfect sharpness. Thanks also to Ivan for finding the exact name. I wondered how a Carolina bird went to Ukraine... !) Best regards,

This young Great Tit certainly telling everyone that he has found water!
A delightful shot, detailing the young bird's plummage and character! The dof keeps the focal image pin-sharp against a fine oof, b/g.

Hi Alexei. Not to sure why i missed this fine picture. What a fine close up of the Great tit. You have taken it wth sharp focusing and fine detail. It look as if is telling its friend where the water is, Your use of the light has given natural colours. well done TFS.

what a wonderful picture of a Great Tit taken with superb sharpness in a very lovely posture, very beautiful natural colours.
As Ivan mentioned, this is Parus major, not Poecile carolinensis in east of North America. This can be identified, by tie (cravat) shaped black pattern of throat and belly in ventral side, from the other palaearctic tit (tit-mouse) species. some other, e.g. P. lugubris has this black pattern only on throat.
As for the shot; this is wonderful in your master quality. sharp details, POV/DOF, coloration, timing and composition great. congratulations. thanks for sharing this beauty. have a good night, my friend

Hi Alexei, I enjoy seeing this small bird so clearly due to your settings and handling of the DOF. Beautiful sharpness. The setting is very suitable as it is typical around the city. Good notes on this bird image. TFS. Murray.

You post a very beautiful bird captured with his mouth wide open. Super sharp detail and very natural colors. Great DOF with perfect exposure!! Well done!!!
Your "thirst trio" is a remarkable photoset on the site - although this is not the best piece of the triade. I mean, sharpness is excellent, but the crop isn't, and by my opinion the brightness is too much, too. Please have a look on my WS. Don't misunderstand me, compared to a lot of other users' pics this photo is brilliant, but to your very high level just a poorly cropped snap. I know it was captured more than 3 years ago - but I already commented all further images of you.
Friendly regards, László
