Bonjour Anne,
A fine capture of a female Blackbird. The POV is excellent and taken with superb sharpness against the greay wintery BG. The eye contact and catchlight in her eye is the crême de la crême in this image!
Merci et bonne soirée,
Amitiés,
Ivan

Hallo Anne!

Dein Bild ist wunderschön! Ich mag die Kombination von "Ornithologie" und Kunst. Dein Bild hat nämlich einen ausgesprochen künstlerischen Aspekt hervorgerufen durch die Farbgebung, den Hintergrund mit den hellen Flecken und den verschwommenen Teil des Vordergrunds.

As liebs Grüessli

Markus

N.B. Habe von Dieter seit der Weihnachtszeit nichts mehr gehört. Werde mich demnächst bei ihm melden.

Hi Anne

Great pov with gret eye contact and detail.

Hi Anne,
eigentlich mag ich die Amseln nicht allzu sehr - sie verjagen immer die kleinen Vögelchen von der Futterstelle. Aber hier sitzt die Lady sehr hübsch vor Deiner Linse - über ihr leuchtet blass die blaue Mond - so sieht es jedenfalls aus ;-) Schönes Bild, vielen Dank und herzlichen Gruß aus dem verschneiten Allgäu
