This is just what the doctor ordered. A real spectacular swallow with fine and delicate features. A lovely close-up with stunning colours, sharp details, and spot on focus. I've got a thing about a bird eye with a flashlight caught in it, and this one with its tiny polka dot eye is no exception. This swallow's feathers looks so soft and smooth and you have captured these details so precisely. The pose of the bird is great, showing the feathers from the side in all its splendour. I find the small pitch black beak very sweet, and the black stripe running from the eye to the beak is very attractive. If I could describe this in humanlike manner I would say this looks like a bird with good manners and a charming personality. This was a real pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing.

an excellent shot of this beautiful tree sparrow with fine composition, excellent details and clarity.
TFS this fine image my friend!
Greetings from cold and rainy Izmir:)
That's a great shot ! I love the details, sharpness, focus and excellent background. Your composition makes this a very clean, professional looking picture. In my honest opinion, I don't think a thick border is the best here as I'd rather see more of your excellent background but besides that, its a winner! Great work.

Excellent sharpness on this shot of tree swallow and great bokeh. I like the diagonal direction of both the bird's body/tail and the branch with matching color to the wings.
C'est une des plus belles photos d'oiseaux que j'ai jamais vue.
Les couleurs et la netteté sont extraordinaires, j'adore son oeil pétillant. Le BG flou fait bien ressortir L'hirondelle. Du bon travail bravo

Hi Michel. This a very beautiful picture of the Swallow which you have taken with fine detail and sharp focusing. This is a good POV/DOF with a nice pose with its head turned to one side. Your use of the light has given natural colours. well done TFS.
This is the most beautiful photo of this Swallow I've ever seen. Superb photoin wonderful natural colours, against a perfect plain BG. The sharpness and details are excellent. DOF, POV and composition are also fantastic. Great class!

Bonjour Michel !
Quelle photo merveilleuse, j'adore ! L'oiseau en lui-même est magnifique, avec cette couleur bleuté sur le dos, les détails sont excellents, la composition et le POV sont impeccables, et l'arrière-plan est fantastique, flou avec de si jolies couleurs pastel. Félicitations !

What a splendid shot from you!
A truly impeccable capture of this cute tree swallow, presented here in a beautiful natural light.
The details are absolutely perfect and the DOF is equally great, giving you a gorgeous bokeh in the BG. This way, the swallow is brought out both by the exceptional focus as well as from the natural contrast of the two.
Wonderful colors and composition, too.
BRAVO, TFS and Happy holidays!

A very beautiful photo. I like the clean look of the composition and the amazingly beautiful colors of the swallow. The DOF isolated the bird with great perfection and gave it this extreemly sharp outline. The details in the feathers are wonderful and the reflection in the eye perfect. I love how the pastel colors of the BG contrasts with the colors of the bird.

Le flou de l'arrière-plan met en évidence l'oiseau. le sujet est bien cadré. La prise de vue permet d'admirer les détails et les couleurs de l'hirondelle sur la branche. La luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
