J'aimes beaucoup la coloration de l'oiseau et le background aussi,
netteté et détails des plumes, la profondeur de champs
et le cadrage sont excllents, TFS
Absolutely stunning photo. The detail is superb and displays all the features of the bird, including its distinctive tail.

Very interesting individual with spectacular plumage. I like how all this works so well with the blurred background. Well done.
