The bird is really beautiful and the composition and lighting is perfect, lovely image. Just think of carrying a monopod atleast since you are using heavy gear which will ease your burden. tfs.

The soft and mellow morning light plays a vital role in making this picture of a Bohemian Waxwing a real masterpiece, Ivan.
It is possible that I have seen this beautiful bird for the first time and I can't take my eyes off its light brown feathers, its colourful plumage and its shapely crested head. Additionally, the snow on the branch lends the image a typical sunny winter day's special touch and adds to the overall appeal of the composition.
The Workshop image of this bird is equally delightful. Even the slightest error in timing would have let that juniper berry in its mouth disappear forever!
BTW, I'm into the last 50 pages of your book and enjoying every bit of your experiences,as if standing by your side ...

Veo que el converter funciona a pesar de esa f4 de tu lente. Yo también he pensado en ello.
Poco a poco ya que la óptica de calidad es cara aunque vale la pena la inversión. Veo tambiém
que tenemos gustos parecidos tú y yo en el equipamiento :o)
Plasmaste los colores de una forma muy atractiva, sacándole un buen partido a la belleza intrínseca de ese ave.
Un abrazo Ivan: Josep Ignasi.
