Bonjour Asbed !
Et bien, il est vraiment bien caché cet oiseau ! Difficile de l'apercevoir, même sur la photo ! C'est une espèce que je ne pourrai sans doute jamais observer dans la nature, alors je suis contente de le voir au moins sur de belles photos comme celle-ci. C'est vraiment de l'excellent travail. Félicitations !

extraordinary image of camouflaged woodcock, excellent sharpness and color. This beautiful shot.
Thanks for sharing.
Supernatural and Fragile! It is a remarkable look inside the world of the aviary. These are the kind of images I used to see at Cleveland Metroparks in their miniature gallery areas along the very long Emerald Necklace...and a few at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History...you should visit them. I have dozens of times as a child! This would be at home in that area.

A wonderful image of this little Woodcock who is sitting very still and keeping well hidden. The camouflaged colors and patterns make this little bird almost totally invisible except for it's big blackish eye. Excellent detail and nicely composed. Well done!!

This most favoured subject of yours, my dear friend Asbed, is a master of camouflage. I love the way you've captured it!

another very beautiful capture of teh Woodcock, the camouflage is impressive, superb sharpness and colours, well done
Perfectly camouflaged between the green vegetation, with only the shiny eye sparkling like a black Perl, that incredible woodcock, the unmistakable logo on your trade mark is the center of the attention in this frame. Difficult to see it indeed, but couldn't escape from your eye, friend Asbed. I am glad to see how carefully you are controlling the sharpness, colors saturation and the contrast here. Bravo!

If it weren't for your pointer dog, this American Wood cock would certainly be missed!
But this is a fine capture showing her with excellent sharpness as she broods among the dense vegetation.
Thanks and kind regards,

No woodcock can hide itself in the Canadian wilderness when you are around. TFS for showing us birds of Quebec.

Les branches et la végétation cadrent bien l'oiseau. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la bécasse d'Amérique. la qualité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. bonne soirée.
