[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi
The Virginia Rail is a common but secretive bird found in freshwater marshes and wetlands.It has blueish-grey cheeks, wings and underparts are chestnut. Making photos of rails is a time consuming activity because they don't show up very ofen and not for long.

Bonjour
Le Râle de Virginie est un oiseau assez commun mais très discret. Il fréquente les marais d'eau douce ou saumâtre, de même que les marais côtiers salés.Il a les joues grises, les ailes marron, le bec et les ailes rougeâtres. Photographier les râles demande beacoup de patience car il ne se montrent pas très souvent à découvert et s'ils le font, ce n'est que pour un court instant.

What a fantastic photo! By far the most beautiful photo of this species I've ever seen. The low POV, the splendid natural colours, great sharpness and very good composition makes this to a high standard photo. A good DOF too.

Salut Serge,je pense que sois impossible faire du mieux,une photo impressionante ,quels details des plums,quelles couleurs riches comme j'aime,et quelle parfaite choix de la prise de vue.Un travail tres professionel et une espece tres jolie aussi.Mes compliments et belle semaine,Luciano

This is just a miracle shot of this Virginia Rail. I've tried taking pictures of them and they are always hiding behind the cattails. I love the fact it's a clear side portrait. It makes for a good educational picture. Very nice indeed! TFS Trevor

Excelente calidad, como la mayoría de los trabajos
que tú publicas en esta web. Gran nitidez y bellos colores
en toda la toma. Buena pose del ave.
