The little guy looks proud, all puffed up, though I am sure it is to keep warm.

Nice focus and composition. The DOF is excellent with foreground vines and background OOF. I like the mass of grapevines (I think) on which the bird is sitting. I think I would like it slightly better if the two vertical foreground vines closest to the bird were not there. One of them seems to run right through the bird. But, we take the oportunities that present themselves and you did a good job with this one!

bonjour pawel
le BG est legerement bruité mais l'oiseau est parfaitement net et bien eclairé.

I love this species!
The picture is a bit soft and all the branches are intrusive.
I tried a workshop to improve this one. Hope you like it!
