Hello Monsieur Rick, what a joy to look at a picture from you! I only saw once this beautiful bird, lucky you! And what a beautiful set up, among the cones and branches, it makes for a beautiful decor for the bird, looking to feed himself. Super shot my friend, so glad to see you back and hope you are fine and Lucy too!

I hope everything is okay - since I was gone I didn't know of your absence. This White-winged Crossbill is a beautiful bird with excellent colors and details. I love the pose and the setting of pine cones. The composition is superb!

Hey Rick, good to see your images again. I think I'd crop out the bottom blur a bit, but otherwise a fine image.

Welcome back, Rick.
You were sorely missed on TN.
This is a wonderful capture of a Crossbill sitting on pine cones.
The focus on the bird is exceptionally sharp and the colours on its body and plumage beautiful.
Please continue posting regularly.

Your picture of the male White-Winged Crossbill is superb. Isn't it also a fine example of the camouflage? I like the unity of the colour tones very much. Moreover, the rich details in the plumage of the bird highlight its beauty.

Pictured bird is so amazing as surroundings. Last one is very pictorial. Ground covered by dry cones is looked wonderfully. Colouration of this carpet is fine. Image of the bird also is first-class. I am impressed with great details and sharpness. All numerous charming features of the bird are reflected perfectly. Bravo. Well done.
