Bonjour Mario,
Fantastic bird shot as always from You, sharp as razorblade, nice colors, even with mysterious atmosphere using the available lights. Absolutely neat background - but I should have cropped a little more from the foreground. Don't take me wrong, just an idea, and doesn't mean I don't like the photo fully. Congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László

Hi Mario,

Lovely picture of this finch. The feather detail is excellent. The head is nicely coloured and the eye has a nice catch light in it. A good out of focus background as well.
Great capture and TFS

Hi Mario,

Very attractive shot of that male House Finch. I'm frequently amazed at how colourful the males are. We get orange ones and red ones in this area. The pairs are doing what I call "feed me" behaviour now. The female expects her mate to find some food and feed her -- just as dad will feed the little ones soon. TFS.


Bonjour Mario,
Une très bonne photo avec un superbe contraste et une excellente mise au point

Hallo Mario
So beautiful and you have captured it with great skill and preciseness. The details are really super and displays well on the screen. This male House Finch is indeed a pretty bird with some fine qualities and your photography brings them out well. I fancy the nat and tidy feathers, the triangular shaped beak and the tiny black polka dot eye. A lovely image to look at, and appreciate. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

bonjour Mario
magnifique image de cet adorable roselin que tu as photographié remarquablement avec tout les détails sur le plumage de l'oiseau, la pose est parfaite

Passe une bonne nuit
