Hello Michel,
Şimdiye kadar yalnızca fotoğraflarını gördüğüm bu güzel kuşun çok başarılı karesini yakalamışsın. Tebrikler.


Hallo Michel
A lovely, brightly coloured bird, and an image that has lots of joy and sunshine that surrounds it. This American Redstart is a striking little bird and has a proud posture to it. I like the sunshine in the image very much. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bizim buralara göre farklı ve çok güzel bir kuş.
Çok güzel fotoğraf,Tebrik ederim, saygılarımla.

A beautiful bird which you have captured with unusual dexterity, Michel. The long vertical frame goes well in this picture and enhances the sense of vast space around the subject.
All in all, an esthetically rich composition.

Hello Michel,
What a splendid species.....Remarkable photo with exceptional clarity and details. The close relatives of this interesting species of birds I found in Europe in my region, the Common Redstart and it is a summer visitor throughout most of Europe..... Very nice composition taken from a excellent POV with lovely light and best clarity.
Thanks for sharing!

hello Michel

Hello Michel,
I love your shot of this pretty little male Redstart. Great eye contact and nice sharp focus. From this angle we get a good look at it's beautiful plumage. Well done!!
I didn't see as many this year up at the marsh as I usually do, so I may have missed most of them by a few days either way.

Hello Michel,
In a nice half frontal POV this is a fine capture of the American Redstart, possibly a first for TN,
The details of the head are superb with excellent sharpness and a fine catchlight in the eye and the rest of the body taken with good detail and colours.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Michael,

Hope you are well and 2013 is proving good for you in every way, friend. I am thankful for the love and support. This is an exquisite shot and I am sorry that I have come to it too late but it is never too late in all the good things one do.....smile.
The American Redstart look splendid in this beautifully captured shot. The focus in this one amazing and it has covered the three fourth of this beautiful in a wonderful fashion and in an admirable light. The clarity of the image impresses as does the skill of the man behind the camera.
Thanks a lot for sharing....take care....warm regards/Abid
