[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello fellow TN friends,
A couple of previous bad sizing pictures are in Work Shop, please have a look.
I took this picture by luck, as I was trying out the setting of my camera on my back yard and all of a sudden I see this small bird standing on my neighbor's TV antenna.
Hope you know his species ;).

Hello Nelson,
Nice photo of this Southern Boubou, Laniarius ferrugineus. Not on the most ideal place, but the quality of this photo is good. Fine sharpness, natural colors and a beautiful blue background. Attractive twinkle in the eye.

Excellent capture of this black and white bird against the blue sky, Nelson. We are neighbours today and I too have posted a black & white bird.
The perch is okay for me since it frames the subject nicely.
Good sharpness with catch-light in the bird's eye.

Hello Nelson,

This is a "Southern Fiscal Shrike".

I have also captured this species but haven't posted yet. Personally I don't like such "MAN MADE ARTICLE" and I don't post any nature photograph where such man made article presents.
Quite well captured; although little bit contrast and sharpness could bring out its DOF. Catching light on its eye is precious.
Thanks for showing this species,
Best regards and have a nice Sunday,

Hello Nelson,
Congratulations on finally figuring out how to upload a larger image:) A beautiful bird photographed against a lovely blue sky. Sharpness is good and you managed to capture that ever sought after catchlight in its eye. Not the most attractive looking perch, but since you took this in your back yard I'm sure you will eventually have the opportunity to photograph one on a more natural looking perch. Good job!

nice shot Nelson of this bird on the antenna
thanks gr lou
