Hello Mikael,
The composition and the colors are so beautiful. The BG looks great. Very successfull focus, sharpness and exposure handling. TFS

Hi Mikael,
Just an all around great capture, very well done. Thanks for sharing

Hello Mikel,
This is amazing shot with great sharpness and details. The exposure is perfect. Composition with tree branches is best suited. Well DOne


What a perky little fellow perched on the tip top of that tree. This is a nice capture Mikael. I like the interesting background created by the shallow depth of focus. Perfect exposure and focus...

Thanks for sharing

A clear, sharp and very well illuminated capture Mikael.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, sharpness, colors, lighting, DOF, focus, background, framing and catchlight.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing to grumble.

I like a lot the cutting of the silhouette on the bottom.
Well done, TFS and greetings... Ricardo

Hello Mikael,
This is a beautiful long shot of this so delicate bird. I like the fact that he is on the top of a tree that makes this BG very clean. You caught excellent details in a very nice POV and composition. This bird is wonderful with this little light in his eye. Thanks,

Hi Mikael,
I've been returning to your Flycatcher a good many times this week - it has evidently made an indelible impression on me. It's so clear, and crisp and tranquil, perched on the tip of the spruce branches all alone against the hinted wilderness. It's interesting how the generous space surrounding it creates a feeling of greater closeness and intimacy than a close-up probably would do. Thank you very much for this very attractive shot,

excellent shot.
no other words.
