I would very much like to see the smile on your father's face when he sees this. A heartwarming photo and dedication, Luc.
By the way the photo isn't too bad either.
Wonderful capture and perfect pose, looking up to...someone special. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Bel oiseau au plumage noir et blanc!
Son regard interrogateur donne beaucoup de sens à la photo.

What a very nice dedication and thought Luc. It is an excellent close-up on this little fellow - nice and clean with great dof, very good sharpness and lots of details. I am sure your dad will appriciate this.
This is a remarkable closeup - almost at macro level. How did you get so close to the bird with your close-up lens? Very sharp and detailed - the only possible improvement I could see would be to lighten the background a little so the top of the head is more clearly visible. Very well done!

What a beauty, Luc! A very fit tribute to your father. : )
It is so sharp and such a close-up for a bird's face. I love the light caught in his eye. Unusual POV, great composition. Thanks for another great shot!

Beautiful photo, and very touching comment about your dad Luc. Excellent portrait of this Chikadee. The twinkle in his eye is great, quite a character he seems. Good details and colours. Well done.

Cette mésange doit être fière d'avoir son gros plan de la sorte.
Beau message à votre père.

Excellent portrait Luc. The twinkle in the eye of the tit must also be in your dad's eye after he read your note. Picture is great! Good details and superb colors. TFS!

He can even see his son in the reflection... :) Exceptional close up, Luc. Even nicer to see the love and respect you show for your father. But I have come to expect this from you. :) I am sure your father could not have asked for a better son. I wish mine would stay with me until 81 at least.

Very good one Luc,
what a fantastic macro shot, fantastic details,l great pof fantastic dof, very good job here,
Great mugshot of this tit, seeing they are so small. I'm sure your Dad will appreciate the bright-eyed little wonder, looking with so much wonder at you, the photographer. Exposure on both B&W very good. It that you in his eye? The English say Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, so both of you seemed to have enjoyed the shoot, and your dad will the post. Hope spring is getting on in the cold, white west. Here in the south, we had nearly 24 hours rain, but today was again very hot.

Superbe portrait pour cette belle mésange. Bonne netteté. Petite note touchante ;-)
Well done !
Luc, I have watched them all, excellent work. I enjoyed very much, although I had to rush through your notes :(
You put it very difficult to choose, but as you know I like things big and detailed, this one was the one.
Thanks for sharing all this. Your friend: Felipe.
TFS this beauty - I can relate to your sentiments, but I lost my dad in 1998. I would have loved to have him see my posts too - but I'm sure he is on a widescreen somewhere up there...
To your dad - "hey dad - your son takes a mean picture and I'm sure your proud of him". Take care. Tim
