Bonjour Michel,
I liked the pose of this cute little fellow!
the image is sharp with nice colour and details!
many thanks for the sharing

Hallo Michel
What a beauty of a bird this is. You have used the light so well to show it of to its bright yellow colour and fine detail. I like the silver coloured pencil shaped beak, and the clarity of the paws and sharp nails. The flashlight caught in the eye is great and adds speciality to this already special image. The green background highlight the bright colour of the feathers even more and makes the contrast between the colours great. Thanks for sharing, it was most enjoyable to look at. Kind regards

Hi Michel
A lovely picture of this warbler. Nicely composed, good detail and sharpness on the bird, lovely catchlight in the eye and beautiful light...well done and TFS

Hi Michel,

A beautiful little Warbler. You caught this fast moving bird in a wonderful pose. Nice vivid yellow, beautiful sparkle in the eye. Sharp details of the face and plummage. I'm far away from you but I have noticed that only the old stand-bys are around. Lots and lots of babies - more than I can remember in any other year.

Merhaba Michel,
Sanki oyuncakçı marketinde vitrindeki oyuncak kuşlardan biri gibi duruyor. Renkleri muhteşem keskinlik ve kompozisyon kusursuz. Çok sevimli bir fotoğraf sunmuşsunuz. Tebrikler.

Bonjour Michel,
Tu as bien raison, les oiseaux sont très rare cette année. J'ai donc décidé de photographier des insects (c'est plein de variétés différentes cette été). Excellente photo avec de merveilleux détails, belle prise de vue et un superbe jaune brillant!

Salut Michel,
Très belle posture de l'oiseau avec une excellente composition.
Comme Lise dit il y a beaucoup d'insecte cet année. Peut être cela confirme l'absence de prédateurs dan notre région.
Merci pour le partage,

Hi Michel, lovely composition with cute bird, fine details, wonderful colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Michel,
Excellent capture of this beautiful Yellow Warbler. Very sharp details, lovely light and colours and a fine background too. Personally I think you've cropped it a bit too tight above its head but that is a minor critique.
Yes, we've definitely seen fewer birds here this year!
Many thanks, Ulla

What a lovely cute little bird :o) Colors and pose you captured are very nice. TFS

Hi Michel
A lovely and glorious shot of this beautiful Yellow Warbler my friend. Great details and POV. TFS.


Hi Michel,
There are many warbler species here and I see most of them. But this is very different in yellow vivid colors. Amazing beautiful. You captured it with a perfect shot. Superb focus, POV/OOF and composition. Congratulations indeed. TFS, best wishes

salut Michel

belle image en close-up du Paruline jaune,
je vais d'abord commencer par la luminosité
de l'image que je trouve excellente, WOW !
superbe POV, DOF et cadrage, j'aimes ton background naturel,
superbe netteté et détails, jolie catch-light à l'oeil
et surtout j'aimes aussi l'ombre de la branche
sur le plumage de l'oiseau, un ombre sans affecter les couleurs,



hello michel,
the Yellow Warbler looks so cute in this capture, your pov is superb and the colors are lovely, you have managed well in difficult exposure conditions, well composed shot,
tfs & regards

Hi Michel,
Thanks for writing your kind critique on my recent picture.
This small yellow Warbler is so well captured it looks life-like.
If there is a marked absence or shortage of some of the birds in your part of the world at this time of the year, that adds another area of anxieties we are in the grip of vis-a-vis global warming. Hope normalcy returns soon.
TFS this lovely image and regards.

Hi Michael
Beautiful yellow bird and great saturated, green/yellow OOF background. Good compo and sharpness and compo. Maybe there could be a little bit more space on the top of the photo but it is a minor thing

Hello Michel,
You have caught this Yellow Warbler at its best!
The yellow plumage is striking and the pose, POV, sharpness and composition against a natural OOF BG shows this male off beautifully.
Yes, we have noticed that there are generally less birds in Sweden, except some species like members of the crow family that seem to be able to adapt better at present to our destruction of the environment.
Thanks for sharing this,

Bonjour Michel,
Image toute en finesse, comme tu les fait souvent.
Bonne présentation décentrée et de magnifiques couleurs bien douces. Vous avez vraiment une grande variété d'oiseaux au Québec.
Bon weekend

Sorry, I was caught up with a lot many things.
This is a shot that's so beautiful, artistically speaking!And given that this is your shot, my friend, I'm sure it is very sound technically, too!
I love the bright colours of this beautiful birs!
Very well captured!

Hi Michel

It's been quite some time since i last visited your gallery...i'm sorry; it seems i've missed quite a lot of beautiful shots.

This is a splendid capture of this Yellow Warbler.
The bright yellow of this bird is simply amazing and very attractive, even from the thumbnail! I love it.
Your exposure here is spot-on and renders it perfectly.
That aside, the sharpness and level of close-up are outstanding and give us a very good idea of the details of this beautiful species.
Very good DOF and side POV, too.
Wonderful work is all aspects!

Bravo and TFS

Bonjour Michel, votre galerie sur les oiseaux est remarquable et je tiens à vous féliciter.Celui ci le "Yellow Warbler" est en harmonie avec le BG et la composition est bonne. Bon WE, Didier.

Bonsoir Michel,

L'image rapprochée de la fauvette jaune est impressionnante. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du plumage de l'oiseau. Le sujet est bien cadré. La lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Hello Michel ,
such a lovely capture in excellent smoothness of colours. Very splendid close up seeing the features and details so well. You have composed so well to render the best of this bird. The yellow colours is really fascinating.
You have skilfully composed the bird and its features nicely.
