Hello Angelo,
Wonderful photo of this Red-rumped Wheatear. There isn't much red to find on this bird, only in flight on the basic of the rump.
Beautiful vivid colours and great sharpness. Excellent blurred BG and composition.

very nice capture, TFS Ori

Hello Angelo,
This is my visit to your gallery and you have a nice one out here.
The bird looks almost like an extension of the shrub where it is sitting.Its colours blend in well with the surrounding and the profile you have managed to capture gives a very good view of its plumage and colours.I see from Ivan's comment this is a Wheatear species first on TN so my hearty Congratulations:)

The light looks tad too high yet the ISO is 400 which is interesting.I am a novice at this and look for information that helps me learn, so i hope you could help me on my thoughts here.The dainty bird is every bit well captured by you.I tried a workshop just for my own learning.Hope you wont mind.

TFS and Cheers

Hello Angelo,

You have made a fine photo as the bird is in a fine pose. Despite yo0ur rear position you have had very good eye contact. The bird is sharply shown and as it stays against the blurry background a nice 3D effect is created.

Thank you for sharing,

Questa non l'avevo neanche mai sentita nominare!
