Hola Michel: Una buena toma llena de movimiento y axión. Una especie muy rápida lo que agrega dificultad a la toma...felicitaciones.

What a fantastic capture of this Marsh wren, Michel.
We have these Marsh wrens in our wetlands, and I know they are very secretive.
So it is amazing that you got such a wonderful view of this little guy,
and in such an acrobatic stance!
What a magic moment with the beak open and the tail straight up.
TFS. : )

Salut Michel,c'est vraiment amusante cette photo...et quelle photo! Une nettete' et des couleurs parfaits mais sourtout un timing au top...c'est jolie de voir quelque fois quelque chose de differente ici...merci!!! Luciano

Bonjour Michel
j'adore la pose amusante de ce Troglodyte des marais, avec chaque patte sur une tige différente, mais ausi avec son bec ouvert et sa queue en l'air,
la composition verticale est très appropriée
tu as réussi à capturer cet oiseau avec d'excellents details
passe une bonne nuit
Jacqueline

Bonjour Michel,
Whaaa!!,quelle superbe capture de ce bel acrobat
Merci pour ce moment de plaisir
Bien a toi
Albert

Bonjour Michel,

Les roseaux cadrent bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du Troglodyte des marais. L'utilisation d'une lentille de 500mm et d'un convertisseur 1.4 permet d'avoir une image précise de l'oiseau. La lumière de l'après-midi rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Bonjour Michel,
Quelle image spéciale et pleine de vie..une attitude très acrobatique de ce Troglotyde des marais et en plus l'expression d'un caractère très affirmé. Une image très drôle et bien présentée.
Un grand merci
Amitiés
Anne

Superb shot, Michel. Surprised to read this is a typical Marsh Wren pose.
You captured it at the right moment. I do like the space you provided above the bird. Well done overall.
I thought no flash was used. So very good fill in.
I saw your lenses in your intro page and I was wondering what lens you prefer? What is your favorite lens generally spoken?
TFS and greetings,
Annick

Hi Michel,

This is an amazing capture of the Marsh Wren! You captured it at the perfect moment with the wide-opened beak and the straight up tail. I have to smile at the pose - it is adorable. Fantastic colors, details and composition.

Hello Michel
Wonderful shot of the beautiful little Wren, really nicely composed shot with a superb pose of the wren in song, very nice details with lovely colours and lighting too.
Best regards Siggi

Hi Michel:)

What a funny and exceptional moment you caught here.
Very impressive shot! The plain light grenish background works extremely well, as does the vertical crop. A shot to be proud of indeed. Well done MF.
Cheers,

Bayram

Bonsoir Michel,

tu ne donnes pas ta place non plus pour la belle photo d'oiseau. Ce n'est pas la pose la plus élégante que j'ai vu, mais son grand écart nous montre que pour eux aussi la vie n'est pas toujours facile. Très belle netteté, belle lumière et exposition juste. Tres beau Bohkey à l'arrière et tu as su capter un moment décisif car je n'ai pas l'impression qu'il a du garger cette pose très longtemps. Bravo et TFS.
