[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my Christmas vacation in Mexico.
A rather difficult shot against bright background.

The white-eyed vireo (Vireo griseus) is a small songbird. It breeds in the southeastern USA from New Jersey west to northern Missouri and south to Texas and Florida, and also in eastern Mexico, northern Central America, Cuba and the Bahamas.
The white-eyed vireo is 13–15 cm (5.1–5.9 in) in length. Its head and back are a greyish olive, and the underparts are white with yellow flanks. The wings and tail are dark, and there are two white wing bars on each wing. The eyes have white irises, and are surrounded by yellow spectacles. Sexes are similar.

Hi Mario,another pearl in your mexican gallery,magnificent captue of this vireo,the usual top quality and a very nice background that seems an abstract peinture,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

My Canadian friend, your work is always impeccable, and you are a teacher who taught me a lot through their jobs. This photo is one more example, against a bright background and exigene've accomplished this wonderful and hyper sharp portrait of this Vireo griseus. My great admiration for you, as always.

A hug from ARGENTINA
