Bonjour Pierre,
Félicitations d'avoir pu faire une photo de ce bel oiseau. Et en plus avec un énorme poisson dans le bec! Un beau cadrage vertical et une belle composition. L'arrière-plan apparaît sur mon écran avec un peu de "bruit", avec neat-image tu pourrais le supprimer.
Meilleures salutations et un beau dimanche

almost perfect shot but very noisy or over sharpened.

Hy Pierre
Maybe this picture has some noise in the bg, but the moment captured here is very good, a small bird with a big fish in the beak. And this wanderful bird, is not a big bird, to be easy to photograph. So, congratuletion for this!

Hi Pierre,
Nice timing and well captured pity about the slight BG noise. However nice fine detail on the bird and its meal,well done.

Hi Pierre

Well done.

I think there were some branches between you and this beauty. Except the negative effect of those branches this is a great photo. TFS.
