[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
End afternoon, Isola d’Elba on the seashore between Rio Marina and Porto Azzuro I spotted during a few days the strange ballet of this bird. The bird was flying constantly from the top of the shore to some hole in the rocks, no nest inside, near the sea. My apologises for not being able to identify it. It was looking like a type of sparrow

Bonjour Serge et bienvenue sur TN,
Toujours contente de voir quelqu'un de mon pays, suis un peu seule sur ce site ces derniers temps.
J'ai regardé tes images précédentes qui sont intéressantes par leur sujet, mais qui manquent souvent de netteté. Ici elle est parfaite et pas facile de prendre un oiseau en vol..
Bon dimanche

Dear Serge,
I hope this beautiful bird did not burn it's feathers :-)

I like your Work very much and add it to my theme "animals' behavior"

Please be aware, that the majority of members will not write a critique, if there are no notes. Either write about the species, if you do not know write about the animal you photographed and ask for help with the ID.

Hi Serge. Nice silhouette. The perfect moment capture. The deep colours come through well. Very much art. TFS Trevor

Hi Serge,
Welcome to TN. A fantastic photo, at least light-wise. Composistion-wise it could be better if you crop the whole right side of the pic (in my opinion) to achieve more space in front of than behind the bird. Beside this, the total lack of note doesn't help to the viewer either: a photo doesn't speak from itself! Please try to write notes to your future posts (about the species, how you made the photo etc.), as it is also asked by the site owners. Also sharing your exif infos would be a great idea in the future, as we all should like to know how, with what settings to gain such nice silhouettes.
Well, that's it for first, I'd like to see more photos of you soon. Best regards, László
