Hi Annick!

The beautiful picture - I especially like the unity of the colour tones - is well accompanied by instructive and interesting notes. I didn't know that bird before, both the picture and the text make me acquainted with it in a pleasant manner.

Kind regards


Ciao Annick,
wonderful details for this nice bird!
Very good shot.

Hi Annick,

Nice capture with your lens, the bird is sharp with good detail of the feathers. Background could be considered a bit busy but that is where we find them.




Very nicely done! This is a great shot. The details and colors are great but most of all, it shows the bird in its natural habitat. I can see that lighting was a bit tough to deal with here - back lit birds are always difficult to photograph. I'd say you managed it very well and pulled off a great shot. Excellent work.

Best Regards,

Hello Annick, this is a different kind of bulbul. The yellow mark on the wings is really looking nice. Well focused shot. Ganesh

Excellent sharp capture of a Black-capped Bulbul in superb lighting and standing out well against the busy BG.


A very well composed pic with good DOF and BG. The lighting is good and your pic is very sharp, showing good detail of the subject.

Hi Annick,
as usual awesome details and sharp focus, but i love the setting and light here. The high contrast is very well exposed too - first class as always!
