Voici le Gros-bec.

Le gros-Bec errant à la taille du merle d'Amérique (17 à 21 cm. Il a un corps teinté de jaune or. La tête, la nuque et une partie de son dos sont brunâtres. Le soleil de la journée nous permet de bien voir cette teinte brune. Il se démarque également par son épais sourcil jaune qui souligne son oeil noir. Ses ailes sont ornées par de larges bandes blanches. Sa queue est quant à elle fourchue et noire. Son bec dur et conique jaune en hiver devient vert pâle en été. Son cri, loin d'être harmonieux, peut se faire entendre à plus d'un kilomètre afin de permettre aux autres membres de la troupe d'être avisés de la présence de mangeoires. On peut apercevoir le Gros-bec dans les forêts mixtes ou de conifères. Nous pouvons l'observer dans nos mangeoires spécialement en hiver puisque la nourriture en forêt se fait plus rare. Il ira donc déguster les petits fruits restants dans les arbres fruitiers des parcs ou des résidences. L'été, leur habitat préféré pour avoir leurs petits est les érablières.

Hi Joseph, great shot of the Grosbeaks. The composition here is great with the two on the branch and the upper one using his wings to support himself. Colour and detail are very good. I've never seen this kind, I'm used to Evening and Rose-Breasted. If someone could identify them that would be great. I will check back.

Thanks, John

An absolute corker of a shot - very well taken and presented...

Hi Joseph

This is my branch…isn’t so its mine…no it’s mine...I was here first so skedaddle…but I saw it first so get lost…Mom, Dad, tell him it is my branch…weh-weh, mommy’s little blue eyed boy is crying to come and help him…I’m not crying, something flew into my eye…I’ll give you half of my seeds if you shoo off now and LEAVE ME ALONE! And we though kids are a handful.

Lovely action in this shot and the composition & POV is great. Well seen and excellently captured. The colours, details, DOF, BG, and exposure are all spot-on. Amazing results for ISO320.

Very well done and TFS.

Muy bonita captura Joseph por la composición tan agradable, a partir del punto de vista que permite la visión de ambas aves con total agudeza y foco, gracias a una correcta iluminación y el adecuado DOF que genera además un muy atinado fondo de escena.
el encuadre ajustado colabora con la estética de la presentación.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Very beautiful capture Joseph for so pleasant composition, starting from the point of view that allows the vision of both birds with total sharpness and focus, due to a correct illumination and appropriate DOF that it also generates a very accurate scene bottom.
the tight framing collaborates with the aesthetics of the presentation.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Bonjour Joseph,

Merhaba,
Çok güzel yakalanmış, kompozisyon ve netlik harika. Elinize sağlık.

Hello Joseph,
This is an extraordinary shot, due to the action and movement catched.
A great and close POV, that enables us enjoy at first row this lovely moment, plenty of clear and sharp details.
The light and illumination couldn't be more appropiate...did you fired the flash, right? I could not see that in the photo info.
This is a good example of how a composition must be done, I really like it, as well as the frame used.

You were so lucky (or patient) to catch this moment.

Congratulations, thanks for share and best regards,
JM
