Nice and sharp with good colors. Congrats

Hello Dave,
I didn't have the chance to see this bird so often; in fact, only once in Mont-Tremblant’s National Park (Québec) and I worked very hard to get a decent picture of this wild and shy bird.

This is a very good capture with excellent details on its plumage and great colors. I like this light in its eye and POV a lot.

I learned something on TN, when you photograph bird, even if you don't have the whole tail apparent in a picture, just let some space for us to “imaginate “ it and it’ll help in composition :-) Thanks,

Hello Dave,
beautiful shot with almost perfect composition.
Brilliant POV, very sharp and vivid colours.
Well done,

This is something that usually takes off on me so often, it is nice to see you have it so clear. Great detail on the spots, The lighting is right for that.

Hello Dave. This is a wonderful portrait of the Northern Flicker. I like the POV showing nice sharp details in his plumage together with vivid colours. Great angle of the head showing the eye and perfect beak. All round lovely composition.

Hello Dave, You have done a masterful job of getting details in this flickers plummage a task I find difficult, the colors are great and the composition is very nice, thanks Dave.

I've tried several times to capture a "wild" bird like this; it always takes off on me.
This is a GREAT image.
Well composed and presented.
Excellent focusing with clarity.
Greetings from Mario from Calgary.

Howdy Dave, That's a BUTE you got there! I especially like the shadow of the beak on the throat! Tfs, Jay
