Hello Laurent,
Great photo of these birds. Both are very sharp and in lovely natural colours. Very nice poses and composition. Good DOF and blurred BG.

Hi Laurent,
Beautiful capture.Both bird are clear and sharp.I liked POV,colors and composition a lot.Excellent work!
Thanks for posting.

OOooohhhh, Laurent - you are such a happy man!!! To see this bird so close - and capture it so fantastic - you are realy lucky!!!
I love this Hawfinch, Coccothraustes coccothraustes - it's the biggest bird in the finch-family. I only had the joy to see one in nature one time in my life ... Amazing.
Thanks so much - this shot is wonderful.
Bye and greetings

A great image with excellent clarity, and colours. Nice composition. TFS Regards Bill

Hi Laurent,
Very nice details and colours.Very good composition.
Well done.TFS.

bonjour Laurent

superbe timing pour faire cette photo
avec les deux espèces différentes,
belle luminosité, excellente netteté et détails,
j'aime également voir les détails du background floue, TFS


Hallo Laurent
This a beautiful image. Great in many aspects. The combination of colours on the plumage is super, especially the larger of the two birds. The detail of the black feathers at the back is very special and makes me think of a few bow ties put together. The little bird with its mouth full of food has a character and charm of its own. All round a spectacular image, presented in a most pleasant manner. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Laurent,

A very attractive image, handsome subjects photographed with skill. Beautiful, subtle color, good, sharp detail. The one on the left sort of reminds me of the Evening Grosbeaks, Coccothraustes vespertinus, that I've seen in the northern US.
