Belle image Mario! C'est clair et net, le fond flou aide a faire ressortir l'oiseau. Bravo.

Nice details.
Good light on the eye.
Well done.

Salut Mario!

Très belle image que tu as là. Netteté et expostion impécable. Une très belle lumière avec des détails tout partout. Une profondeur de champs velouté donnant un fond qui rappelle ceux des photographes d'antant.

Chapeau pour cette réussite.

Woow Mario, great capture!
Perfect in focus, detail and composition.

Hi Mario!
Excellent shot of this nice bird. Maybe not so showy as its relative with red cap, but also looks great. Very nice pose, composition and details.

Bonjour Mario!

J'aime bien l'éclairage qui donne beaucoup d'éclat au couleurs de l'oiseau. Félicitations pour la netteté et les détails du plumage. L'arrière plan est superbe et j'uste bien colorée pour faire ressortir le sujet.

Merci pour cette superbe composition de grande qualité.

Hello Mario,

Very good-quality shot. In some way, the pattern from the feeder is reflected on the pecker's wings :-)
Best greetings,

Hi Mario,
A great shot, I really like these woodpeckers. Lovely detail and an unusual composition to see a feeder rather than a tree.

Hi Mario,

An excellent shot on Mrs. Downy. Spont on exposure, and the detail is excellent. Perfect OOF backround really has her standing out!

Hi Mario,
Great photo of Mrs Pecker. A very good job to keep the white from OE. Details and DOF are excellent.

This is really a very good shot o this woodpecker. I find it quite amuzing that you managed to get a bird with the opposite spot effect to the bird feeder. Though I have to say that we have moved to unshelled suflower seeds becuase the mess was getting out of hand...

Very nicely done.

Hola Mario, el encuadre no puede haber sido mejor, realmente bueno. Se puede decir que es casi una fotografía en balnco y negro siendo en color, ;-)
Buena nitidez y el fondo perfectamente desenfocado.
Me gusta mucho.


Hi Mario,
Fantastic shot. Exellent komposition.
Very well colors, POV, DOF and BG.
Well done!!!
