Une vue d'un merle vantard (Turdus plumbeus shistaceus) de l'ordre des Passériformes et de la famille des Muscapidés qui a un insecte dans son bec. La photo a été prise lors d'une vacance à Cuba. Je remercie Steve Pryor qui m'a aidé à identifier l'oiseau.

Turdus plumbeus schistaceus - adult male.

Hi Pierre,
Very good capture of this Red-legged Trush. Great pose and composition, sharp details and bright natural colours.

Hello Pierre

A very good capture of this thrush.It has the characteristic eye ring.
God detail.
The colours look very good.
I am amazed at the brightness of the eye ring and feet.


You do get around Pierre...I am intrigued by your travels which have included especially Cuba....almost as if you were in the what we call the US...DOS worker,....but none the bless well traveled and works well enjoyed!

Bonjour Pierre,

Je crois que c'est la première fois que je vois cet oiseau. J'aime beaucoup le contour de son oeil rouge. Tu as capté de bons détails dans une bonne exposition. La ligne verte en background est quelque peu dérangeante mais on ne fait pas toujours ce que l'on veut avec les animaux :)
