This is an excellent bird shot. The Blackbird is in very good details. The details on the wings and head are so vivid which is not easy for the black bird.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.Siggi

Wish you and family a Merry Christmas, Gert!
It is a sheer joy to see your work off and on on TN. This picture of a Blackbird is the last word in bird imaging.
Hope you are keeping well.

A stunning shot, Gert, as usual, nothing but the best from you!
I love the way you've showcased the plumage, which, despite the the monotonous black, has come out perfectly detailed.
Very well done, Sir!
Seasons Greetings to you!

Hi, dear Gert.
Many thanks for holiday greetings and nice comments to my deleted picture. I also wish you all the best in 2011 and nice holidays as well as to continue a brilliant series of posted pictures. I will come back to every posted by you shots. Now I wish to express my admiration with this picture. Amazing subject especially tree branch pattern. Superb bokeh. Exceptional exposure and reproduction of all bird features including feathers. Composition is spot on too. Bravo as always.
P.S. Unfortunately, I think next year will be so strained as present one.
Hello Gert - this looks like one of our 'kiwi' blackbirds... Only this one is fatter - he has more feathers that our skinny ones.
Superb shot of the beauty. His colours are so very clear, especially hisyellow eye make-up and beak.
Best regards and merry Christmas
