[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Back out on the path by my house again. This area is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots for bird photography. They seem to be getting to know me also (-: Anyway, here is a Hermit Thrush. Again the lighting was good but that darn branch again. Oh well, maybe better luck this weekend.

Hi Tom

Running late this morning, but enough time to see that this is an excellent post. Good POV, clarity and details. TFS.

Hi Tom,

No complaints from me, as the birds are difficult to capture. You hear the wavering flute sound, but not often seen.
Excellent capture and well done on the composition.

Those who complain about that branch, just brush it off, nature, that's what it is all about. ;) :)

Good work ! The branch is not that bad. Sharpness and lighting is very good. Thanks,


Hi Tom,
it's a very good and natural picture.
The branch is a part of the nature and it's not disturbing.
Very good details, well composed and nice light.
Very well done.

What a pretty bird, Tom. Sharp details, good exposure, and Great POV. Too bad that the twig is in the way. I did a workshop just to experiment to see if I can clone the twig off. Let me know what you think. Well done and TFS. : )
