[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this shot along Joe Overstreet road in Osceola County, Florida with my guide/instructer Jim Neiger, one of the finest avian photographers around who will get you to the birds.

Along this road you can hear a chorus of singing meadowlarks. While hanging out and waiting for some to show themselves, I managed to capture this one singing one on a fence post.

Hi Michael,
So beautiful bird you captured on a great place and in a great posture! Time for singing! Great soft brown bg looks wonderful! Although there is a little bit noise on there! You can use removing noise software, like neat image, noiseware etc.
Thank you for this beautiful bird!

Hi Michael,
This is a wonderful capture of this bird that I didn't know about, wow! You caught him at a good timing with its open beak and I like these details on its feathers. This is a very good POV and composition. Well done and TSF,

Nice picture but it's a little bit too much color noise I think. Why the use of ISO 400 when you have a shutter speed of 1/2500 sec?

Composition and colours are magnificent as well the background.
Though the image does not look completely sharp, it is a nice picture.

That's a beautiful bird that you have captured so well! I love his pose with open beak, the colours, the sharpness, the background and the composition as a whole. Excellent!

Hi Michael;
What beautiful colours she has. The focus on the head and beaks are a bit lacking but stil a good image.
Well done.
