Hello Michel,
Your 500MM really does a gret job for you as this shot actually looks 3D. The detail is super fine and colors are true and natural. The plumage is so beautiful and yes, it really does look camouflaged against the boulder. Awesome!!

Hello Michel
Interesting species and impressive photo with very good composition, nice walking pose, wonderful colors and very good sharpness.

Bonjour Michel,
Une image dynamique de ce petit bécasseau pressé. Bonne préentation décentrée.
L'arrière-plan coloré ne me dérange pas ici, et je n'y vois pas beaucoup de bruit.

Hello Michel,

A lovely little fellow, nicely frozen in the forward movement!
Sharp fine details in the plume, colours are well reproduced...
DoF works well and isolates the bird nicely from the surroundings!

Hello Michel,
Impressive photo of this Least Sandpiper in excellent sharpness, taken from a very good low POV with a good DOF. Nice natural colours.

Hello Michel,
Something unique here....A fascinating photo with very nice colors and perfect exposure. Excellent image with lovely light and best clarity. I like especially the fantastic contrast against the background despite the soft and superb colors of this bird.
