[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Esta é uma fêmea de Canário da Terra.

Nome Científico: Sicalis flaveola.

Nome Comum: Chapinha, Cabeça-de-fogo.

Distribuição: Praticamente em todo Brasil,
com exceção da Região Amazônica.

Habitat: Bordas de matas, áreas de cerrado, campos naturais e
pastagens, além de áreas cultivadas.

Características: 13,5cm de comprimento, peso de 20g.
Um dos cantos mais apreciados pelos passarinheiros.
Os filhotes podem receber aulas de canto, normalmente do
estilo carretilha, metralha ou estalo.
Além da aptidão para o canto, são muito valentes e
por isso, infelizmente, utilizados por alguns criminosos como "canários-de-briga".

Hi Paulo
An excellent capture of this lovely little bird. The sandy surface actually makes for a very interesting BG and compliments the bird very well. The composition is great, the colours are well defined, the details are sharp, and the exposure was well managed showing great contrasts on the bird’s feathers.
Very well done and TFS.

Hola Pablo! It is the first time I see a "earth Canari" (Canari de Terre)! I like the little spark within its eye and the way it held his head! Colors looks perfectly natural and the details are great! Very well done and TFS,

Excellent picture Paulo. The focus is sharp and details are very clear. Colors are supurb and exposure is good. The light is rather hard, but you handled that well. The bitumen of the road provide an unnatural surrounding, but that's my only real nit. Well done & TFS!


Very good capture, Paulo!The pose of bird is excellent and the tones of photo very nice.
Best regards

Hi Paulo.
I like this shot very much not only for the coloration but most of all por the perspective and details.
Great POV and DOF.
