Bonjour Marie, je ne te connais pas mais j'ai été attirée par la photo de mésange qui est très belle, avec le mouvement des ailes mais dans la noirceur, ce qui rejoint bien ton propos. Je te souhaite force et courage dans ce moment difficile et de souffrance.

Hi Marie,

Bob

Bonjour Marie,
I wish you strength at this time and it is good that you can post shots to TN despite the emotional struggles that you are suffering.
This sharp action shot of a Chickadee is great: it is full of life. Life must go on...

coucou marie
je vois que tu es toujours dans cette dure épreuve, excuse moi, je crois mettre tromper en te demandant des nouvelles de ton papa!!!!!!
je te souhaite beaucoup de courage et de force, il n'y a pas pire moments que celui que tu traverse.
toutefois merci de nous faire un coucou en nous montrant cette jolie mésange, j' aime cette aile presque transparente
félicita tions et courage encore++++++++++++++++

Bonjour Marie,

Très bon timing pour prendre la photo. Très belle pose de l'oiseau. La netteté est bonne et les couleurs sont parfaites.

All of our best for you and your mother...but for you who must remain, it is always hard...you know of course through nature and natural process, there is a spring of something new behind the veil...my mother used to say to me..a quote she loved so much...
"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."
Aujourd`hui nous voyons au moyen d`un miroir, d`une manière obscure, mais alors nous verrons face à face; aujourd`hui je connais en partie, mais alors je connaîtrai comme j`ai été connu.

Bonjour Marie,
Très symbolique ton image, il y a là une grande transparence, quelque chose de léger..
Nous sommes avec toi en pensées dans ces moments difficiles. Mais l'oiseau te le transmet, il semble que partir ne soit pas si difficile.

Dear Marie
I'm so sorry for that hard moment... I hope your mother is fine now, better and happier. Sorry that I have no many words to say how much I am with you.
Surely this is a bird your mother would have loved to fly with.
How cute and wonderful shot! Great sharpness in an excellent action-shot. Splendid POV and composition with a lovely pose of the beautiful bird.
My best wishes to you.

Bonjour Marie
