Hello Michel,
Definitely not an easy bird to photograph as they seem to never sit still. I have a few shots from Magee Marsh, but nothing as nice as yours. Great job!!

Hi Michel,
I like this photo of the bird. Excellent point of view. I like your presentation. Very good depth of field. Nice natural colours.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Michel,
No doubt a splendid image. Perfect photo taken from a good POV. The details and colors of this very interesting bird are great. I love the superb contrast against the background.
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Michel,
Excellent photo of this Black-and-white Warbler with a good sharp focus on the head. Lots of details are visible. Maybe you can remove a piece of the right side of the photo, it adds nothing to the picture. Beautiful natural colours, also in the nicely contrasting background.

Hello Michel
A detailed photo of the warbler, catching the light nicely. Good point of view. Perfectly focused on the bird.
regards yiannis

Salut Michel,une excellente capture malgre' la position vraiment difficile,tu as perdu un peu de details au dessous mais on peu voir le visage de cette espece tres tres bien,presque une photo en blanc et noir.Mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano

Hi Michel. You're right. These guys are rare. I was lucky enough to get a shot of one once. They like to follow the tree like a creeper and blend in well with tree knots. It's nice to see you posted this guy. Just an exciting looking bird. TFS Trevor

Bonjour Michel,
Un oiseau zébré bien spécial, je ne me souviens pas de l'avoir vu! Tu l'as capté en plein mouvement, bien vu!
Un posting intéressant nous montrant une espèce peu commune.

Hello Michel,
A terrific capture with such fine details, coloration & timing. Well composed & presented with an attractive POV. Nice work & TFS. Best wishes!


Salut Michel

Tu as cliqué la caméra juste au bon moment avec
cette pose de l'oiseau ne touchant pas l'arbre,
et j'aimes ce flou de sa patte qui nous montre
le mouvement, excellent focus sur l'oiseau, TFS

merhaba Michel
You are lucky to find such a beautiful birds in Canada. There are many birds here (near 500 spp). But yours moslty more colorful. I hope I will visit there and you in future.
Black and white warbler is one of most handsome birds. You greatly captured it on trunk, with great focus and eye contact. Exposure and colors very nice. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend my friend

Hello Michel,

TFS and my regards,

Hola Michel, espectacular foto de este bello migratorio muy dificil de fotografiar por ser muy rápido e inquieto. Ha logrado una foto espectacular, con mucho movimiento y excelente manejo de la luz. Me gusta el entorno y la composición tambien...feliz año nuevo...
