Félicitation Japie pour cet Etourneau sansonnet chanteur. Un reflet artéfact peut faire penser à un troisième oeil dans la gorge !!Belle harmonie de couleurs. Didier.

You are an artist, Japie, but I think this one is painted by numbers ;-) I made some when I was a child.
Seriously (I will try), your Star-ling is a King on TN. Personaly, I see more Liberace than Elvis in this strong visual impact with a little bit of Frank Sinatra in the composition, but it is personal, as I said ;-)
An excellent work, friend.

...but Elvis has left the building ;-)
I saw thumbnail and thought - wow, Japie sended another picture of exotic bird from Africa. Then I looked at picture and - bingo! - this is one of most common and annoying [not for me!] European city birds ;-) He is beautifull, very fast and loud. Great pose and details Japie, TFS!

Very nice Japie.
The Starling is a very beautiful bird with the exotic plumage.
But I don't know if it will sing like Elvis, more like Mrs Miller.
Good details, POV, composition and colours.
Well done, my friend.

So tussen hakkies - jou donkie lag nog al die pad na top scores toe - baie geluk.
En ek kan sien hoe sing sekere Europeers hulle hart uit - a very nice post he got for this trubute to the King. Good pose with the open bill.

Very nice capture, Japie.
Really good pose and composition, lovely light and colours. Maybe the contour looks a bit PP for my taste. Good work.

Looking at the size of thie birdie, I'd say its an early Elvis. :) Impressive pose and POV, the colors are captured very well. Great shot, Japie. Very well done.
