Fine capture of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
This is sharp and well composed with fine BG and catchlight in the eye, even though that eye is in the shade.
Well done and TFS!
un très bon cliché pas facile à réalisé, cet oiseau étant souvent perché très haut.
la cadrage est excellent, et le jeu de camouflage avec le tronc intéressant.
Juste un légère perte de netteté (ws).

Your work just keeps improving! The composition is excellent. A difficult exposure with the back lighting, but you managed it well. I like how the sunlight just hits the edges around his head. Nice color saturation and good detail. I bet you are loving that 80-400.

Great closeup, the colors, deatils and composition are all excellent. So he was being a bully you should have shown him who's boss.

Well composed, nice BG colors and a great POV also :)

This is the first time I see this specie :) What a nice and unusual one! I like it pose exposure and colors. I guess that this lightning was hard to manage with but you did great. This little light in its eye is superb and I also like this nice blue BG. Well done! Thanks,
PS, I would trade your Tufted Titmouse anytime with my Cardinal :)

Wonderful capture.POV,use of backlight,clear eyes,framing,details and visual impact are excellent.Have a great weekend!
I'm still around here, my friend, just that time became a very limited thing for me. This year is the final one before the graduation of the second university studies for me, so I have to take more extra jobs to pay all the expenses that this final year implies (taxes, materials for my graduation thesis, etc)
I'm not forgeting my friends though. I watch from time to time what's new around TN and I hope that somewhere in mid - summer to be able to post and participate more consistent here. Till then, I just have to be patient.
And it's true that your photography is gaining artistic quality with every new shot you post here.

I like this picture for 3 things :
1.The pov, the trunk going from top to bottom and the torso and the head pointing out diagonally!! Its beautiful
2. The exposure, the exposure is so well managed , the details on the bird is amazing.
Having said that the only thing i did not like is the frame around the picture ( its just my opinion, not really a nit)

Je découvre ta galerie, et je dois dire que tes photos d'oiseaux sont toutes plus belles les unes que les autres... Il n'y a pas assez de points (2 c'est vraiment peu) pour montrer combien j'apprécie...
Bravo et merci de partager.
