Bonjour Dave
Quel belle prise de vuede cet oiseau! Les détails sont excellent et on la distingue très bien du BG foncé. J'aime beaucoup sa position et ta composition.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Funny how life gets in the way isn't it? I like the soft, gentleness of this image. I think the bird itself could do with a tad bit more saturation. I find the couple of hot spots distracting and I think frame is a little confusing. There is however something about the image that is really appealing... like a watercolor painting.

Hi Dave. Good capture of this little titmouse. Good clarity and colours. Some creative PP make it interesting as if a lens effect on the edge. Murray.

Hi Dave,
Excellent composition on the Titmouse. Nice quality soft light here. Colors and detail look great in the plumage. I like the soft slightly OOF focus surroundings. Well done my friend!

Hello Dave,
Excellent capture and framing work. Light colours work very good here.
Best greetings and I hope you'll have some time to relax soon!

Hi Dave,
this a nice shot of the little bird.There does seem to be a fair number of birds that have crested heads and this is one that I have never seen before now,so thanks for posting it.This photo stands well on its own merits and there is really nothing I can add that the others haven't already said.TFS. Bob

Beautiful light and colors.
Centering subject is usually a mistake. For some reasons it is not disturbing in that case.
Brilliant background (almost beter than the bird itself).

Hi friend .... a nice bird with great colours .... nice perspective and details! Take care Ana:)

Hi Dave,
Great shot of the little guy nestled in the pines, you handled the bright light and shadow well.
Nice details and look-back pose too..
Don't be a stranger now..ya hear :)

Perfect composition - artistic and yet tells the tale of this tiny bird. You managed a catchlight in the eye even at the distance from which you took the photo.
I like the soft light - I know that light - I've seen that sort of light in person and your photo puts me there. :D

Hi Dave,
Happy that you com back.
Excellente prise, la composition, les couleurs, les détails, tout est superbe.
