bonjour a tous.
aujourd'hui je vous presente un oiseau que l'on a pas l'habitude de voir sur TN(enfin c'est le deuxieme publié ce soir!!).il est nouveau dans ma galerie,l'image n'est pas exeptionnelle mais pour l'instant je ne sui pas parvenu a approcher d'avantage.
cet oiseau tient son nom de son comportement,en effet lorsqu'il a attrapé un proie il l'empale sur une epine de son perchoir pour pouvoir l'ecorcher.
ici c'est un mâle pris en fin de journée avec 400mm canon plus TC1.4 kenko.

Hello all.
today I will present a bird that was not used to seeing on TN (finally is the second issued this evening!). it is new in my gallery, the image is not exeptionnelle but for now I do not reach a sui approach advantage.
this bird gets its name from behavior, in fact when he caught a grip on it empale a thorn from its perch to the ecorcher.
here is a male taken at the end of the day with 400mm canon more TC1.4 kenko.
info .

Hi Laurent

Great shot of the Red Backed Shrike.
Its a excllent POv with a lovely pose complete with the bee lunch.
Good details and very nice pastel colours.

Hello Laurent
A fantastic capture of this glorious shrike with lunch in his beak.
Perfect sharpness set against a fantastic background...The only shame is the branch shrouding the middle of the shrike.
That said it is a Fantastic Capture and Many Thanks for sharing this superb capture.
Best Regards
Paul

Salut Laurent
Quel merveille.Excellente composition.Image bien en focus avec de bon detail.J,aime bien la pause de ton sujet ainsi que la capture de ton sujet en préparation de diner.L'arriere plan est tres jolie.
Merci Michel

Bonsoir Laurent,
C'est vrai qu'il y a une branche qui cache un peu ce bel oiseau, mais il n'est pas facile à photographier. J'ai campé il y a quelques années dans un bois de pins dans les Alpes de Haute Provence sous un nid de pie grièche écorcheur. Je n'oublierai jamais le chant si passionnant de cet oiseau aux levers du soleil. Un couplet un peu criard et répétitif, mais des refrains très créatifs et mélodieux. L'ensemble du chant était construit de manière "mathématique". Merci de dévoiler cet oiseau assez discret.
Amicalement,
Catherine

Hi Laurent. A very good close up of the shrike. which you have captured with fine detail and colours. good timing to get the insect in its mouth.with a nice POC. well done TFS.
Nick..

C'est une belle image avec une composition saisissante. Le détail minuscule de l'abeille dans le bec est spectaculaire, sans compter sa pose. Le DOF est excellent et est la POV. La clarté est étonnante - de l'autre côté, plusieurs de vos photos sont étonnantes.

D'ailleurs, merci de vos mots aimables sur ma photo.

Brilliant photo, Laurent!
The shot is really sharp and full of detail.
The little bee in his beak is a bonus!
Excellent composition.
Superb DOF.

Well done my friend and it's great to see you back!

Joe

Hi Laurent,
Handsome looking bird, love the "zorro" mask.
Very good details, colors, exposure, DOF, comp, and BG.
The branch between the viewer and the bird is hardly noticeable..
I'm busy looking at the bug in its mouth :)

Hi Laurent.
This species is my subject for shooting these days too. However I have not such wonderful shots as yours. Bravo, Laurent, amazing scene at whole and superb reproduction of the fine birds and its prey. Attractive twigs create a wonderful patter and decorate a shot very well. BG is superb too. Its colouration is great. Bravo. Excellent work.

Hi Laurent,
Wonderful shot of this cute Red-backed Shrike with a mouthful. Very impressive sharpness and colours on its plumage and I like its pose on that branch. Superb lighting and exposure and your precise DOF isolates the subjects nicely from the BG. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Interesting shot. Expression very good. Well presented.

Hello Laurent,
Superb capture of this beautiful Shrike with a Bee in its beak! Even though you have a branch in front you've focussed in beautifullly on the bird and details are very sharp. Lovely colours too and a very beautiful soft background. Well done!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

bonjour Laurent

et bien moi je trouve SUPERBE ton image du Pie-grièche,
selon moi pas besoin d'être plus près, j'aimes le POV, le DOF
et surtout le cadrage, j'aimes voir cette grande espace devant l'oiseau,
excellente netteté et détails et j'aime voir cet insect dans son bec,
tu as fait une superbe image, TFS

Asbed

Hi Laurent,
Thanks for your critique on my recent picture.
We have communicated with each other after a long gap.
This picture of a Shrike holding a winged insect in its beak is a brilliant capture from a lateral point of view, giving fine details on the bird. The focus is sharp and the composition outstanding.
TFS and regards.

salut LOLO
Beaucoup de nouveau oiseau dans ta galerie, mais ou vas-tu chercher tout ça????
l' information est tres interressante et surprenante, la nature est quand même bizard.
très belle présentation, des couleurs parfaites en netteté, rien a ajouter sinon que tu es un pro
bravo

Bonjour Laurent!
Wonderful and very colourful picture! I like a lot its colouration, very cold warm tones of BG and perfect contrast!
Sharpness and DOF are also very nice for watching.
TFS and have a nice evening!
Friendly yours,
Radomir
