Hi Mikio,

A new one to me,very well composed with good color and detail,tfs


Hello Mikio !
What a cute and lovely bird ! I love his colors, his markings, but I don't think I had ever seen it before, so I must thank you for making me discover it. Sharpness and details are excellent, nice natural colors, splendid composition and POV, beautiful blurred BG, and a cute pose of the bird. Very well done !

Hello Mikio,
Thanks for sharing your Yamaha...I mean Yamagara.
You don't see pictures taken in Japan here. So it's very good to see one. Guess I never saw this specie as well.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Mikio,

Your photo has a fine composition withthat diagonaly placed perch. It seems leading viewers sight towards the main subject, the bird. This is well shown in a sharp image with good details of body and plumage. Very nice colors are rendered with a fine contrast between bird's and background's colors.

Thank you for sharing,

Hello Mikio
Very good photo of this Red-sided Titmouse. One of the best I ever saw of this endemic from your part of the world. Excellent sharp details and great natural colours. The pose is lovely. I hope you got more endemic birds to show us.
Have a good weekend,

hello Mikio
What a beautiful picture of this little bird, his colors are fantastic, great pose and composition
I like it very much

Hallo Mikio
This is an outstanding image and superb camera work. The details captured on the plumage are outstanding. You managed to capture and display every detail of the bird including the slightly opened charcaol beak, the small polka dot eye and especially the delicate and smooth looking feathers on the head area. It was a pleasure looking and admiring this little birdís beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Mikio,

Lovely shot of the bird.The eye seems to be twinkling. The background is also nice.

Hi Mikio,
a very lovely bird in excellent pose. Very sharp and clear. wonderful composition showing the lines and feathers. The diagonal branch gives a good graphic effect to the photo.


Mikio, This is an awesome image. Great job. I certainly do appreciate your kind comment on my 'Skimming The Surface' shot. This is a special one for me and I'm happy that you like it. I didn't have time to get all of the reflection.
Have a great week, Bill
