Bonjour Michel,

Bravo
Marie

Hi Michel,
Wonderful capture of this scene!
I like so much your POV and the pose caught on the bird, while feeding? in that plant.
So curious the way it has each leg on different branches to get a proper position.
You made a very good wide composition.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
JM

Hello Michel,
Great sharp and beautifully composed shot of a male American Goldfinch. Excellent bokeh BG emphasises the subject and the pose of the bird on the thistle flower is very attractive.
Well done and TFS!

A beautiful moment captured by you Michel, the OOF backgrounds are always pleasing and really bring direct focus on the main subject. Well done with this beauty. :)

Bonsoir Michel,

Une belle image de ce chardonneret jaune, la photo a une bonne composition, netteté et de jolies couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Hi Michel,

This is one of my favorite birds. You did a great job capturing it. Exelent composition, beautiful BG bokeh, good focus and exposure. I like the way it straddles the plant, not a common sight. Well done!

All the best Paul

En regardant dans ta galerie, j'ai trouvé cette petite merveille. J'en aime bien la composition, les couleurs vives et la pose un peu acrobatique de cet adorable oiseau. Bravo

Excellents détails et superbes couleurs autant du chardonneret que des fleurs de chardon et du BG! Belle pose de l'oiseau qui semble vraiement sentir les bourgeons!
BRAVO et MERCI!
