[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is not the first nor will be the last photo of this beautiful carpenter upload to my gallery. But probably it is one of the richest in expression. The bird, a cute female (remember that females across his cheek and a black stripe instead males one blood red stripe) that we can not imagine not doing nothing but think; While meditating ... was the focus of my lens; and I tuned her spiritual state and I think meditated with it; about life; about the mysterious fate that both we all face; in disbelief; with a certain fatalism. I wanted to convey; my companions; this experience; this peaceful communion with this bird; very early in the morning ...

Very nice picture, neighbour Hernan.
I appreciate your spiritual connection with the bird. I guess we reach this state while in deep communion with nature.

Te tha quedado muy bonita la foto con sus tonos grises y los detalles de color naranja en la cabeza y puntos en la rama. El formato horizontal alargado le va muy bien. Enhorabuena y un saludo.

Hello Hernan- Beautiful Bird. Well captured with true natural colour and sharpness. I would like to give it a little bit space on its top portion. Well managed BG with good details on branch too. Thanks for sharing your work with useful NOTE. Regards- Srikumar

Bonjour Hernan,
Très beau ce "carpenter" de noir et rouge vêtu. Il a l'air bien sympathique¨ avec son petit bonnet rouge.
Bon cadrage horizontal et couleurs naturelles.
