Nice silhouette and nice bird (Bombycilla garrulus). In our region this bird is rare (in winter). Super fhoto. I like the light and background. Bravo. Best regard, Cezar T.

Quelle belle houppe !
Bonne journée.

Excellent silhouette of one the most beautifull bird in Europe.

Hola Mikael.- Una foto a contraluz de este pequeño "Chinitio" Hermano de uno similar que tengo aqui en mis archivos. Me agrada tu foto. Saludos Luis52.

Hi Micke,
it's a beautiful silhouette anf the light top of the head is great. Well composed and the POV is good as well.
I like the morning light.
Well done, you tired man.

I was at the Villa today and it was quite cold -8C and a hard wind from north so I didn't stay long. Got some decent picture of Robins and Long-tailed tit but no sight of the bearded tit. Maybe tomorrow but it will be colder,
around -14C.

Hello Mikael,
where do I stop saying how I like your images. Also this one is really fine. The only thing I don't get is the shutter speed of 30 sec. But even if it was 1/30 it is a great achiefment for a handhold picture.
Compliments, Jacob

great, original pic, TFS Ori

Hi mikael,

Well I was checking out postings from other members and I came across this beautiful silhouette of your cedar waxwing. Well done on a very nice exposed image. :)

Wow. What a unique and interesting shot.
