[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica) is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family Turdidae, but is now more generally considered to be an Old World flycatcher, Muscicapidae. It, and similar small European species, are often called chats.
The Bluethroat is similar in size to the European Robin at 13–14 cm. It is plain brown above except for the distinctive black tail with red side patches. It has a strong white supercilium. The male has an iridescent blue bib edged below with successive black, white and rust coloured borders. Some races, such as L. svecica svecica (Red-spotted Bluethroat) of northern Eurasia, have a red spot in the centre of the blue bib.
Others, such as L. svecica cyanecula (White-spotted Bluethroat) of southern and central Europe, have a white spot in the centre of the blue bib. L. svecica magna in Turkey has no central spot.

Hi Pierre!
Very good shot of Blue-throat in fine sharpness and details. It is not easy to get a close shot of this restless bird. A little noise removal from background would have improved the quality of this fine shot. Still, it is a very good one. Thanks for sharing with us,
Warm Regards,

Hello Pierre,
A stunning image of this gorgeous Bluethroat. You managed to capture this awesome shot from an attractive low POV. I love the fine detail and beautiful colors in it's plumage. Wonderful eye contact and you even managed to get that ever sought after catchlight.
Looking at this pretty little bird gets me excited about the upcoming Spring Migration which is about a month and a half away. I can't wait to get out!!
Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try a WS on this beautiful image.

nice presentation of a beautifull bird!
