What a superb capture of a bird that I have never seen before! I like this pose and composition a lot with superb colors and details. I have seen a couple of crossbills briefly last week for the first time but couldn't get a good shot of them as they were too high in a pine tree. This is a capture that you could be proud of!

Beautiful work ! This is an amazing capture - clean, sharp, well composed and wonderfully lit. Awesome.
P.S. This bird has been on my 'to photograph list' for a long time but so far I've had no luck.... So for now, off to my favorites it goes!

this bird has great colour and when I first saw the thumbnail in the gallery it simply caught my eye.Here in Alberta where I live we have these birds as well and to date I have yet to see one and now I know what I have been missing.The colour is beautiful and the pov and sharp focus makes this a treasure and a pleasure to view.Thanks,Mario for giving us this bird to view as most people have never ever seen one.

This is a beauty.
I really like the composition,the frame is filled well.
The bird is striking,and the plumage is terrific.
Excellent light and rich colours.
The POV and DOF are well done.
Wonderful eye detail and catch light,the cross bill really shows well.

A really superb shot! Superb detail and exposure and a perfect surround for the subject. Top work!
PS - this weekend I saw two Common Crossbill here in England - it's only the second time I've ever seen them in my life. I managed to get a shot of the female here but it's nowhere near as stunning as this shot.

I like a lot the dynamic pose got, the composition with the cones and the vertical framing chosen.
It's so beautiful the displayed colours and the beak detail seen.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

This is an excelent photo showing the bird in an interesting pose. The sharpness of the image is impressive, even fine feathers can be seen in great details. The colors are also very well rendered being so saturated and vivid.
Thank you for sharing,
