[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture today, in the small park across the street from my house, where I take most of my pictures, and where I learned two years ago
that there are more than sparrows in the trees, and ducks on the pond.

Chickadees are very fond of sunflower seeds and experts in cracking and eating small pieces at a time.

Hi Mario.
Your picture is simply great. All component of the shot is excellent: captured scene, composition, amazing colours, sharpness and details of the beautiful bird. DOF is great too: blurriness of the BG is perfect.

Details are perfect but there is a small light problem on white colors. Anyhow it is nice to see a still and sharp image of these always moving beauties.

Hi Mario,
A bright image; nice soft colours and detail.
My nitpicking: it tends to have blown out highlights partially.
Overall well done

Hello Mario,
This is a superb portrait of a bird I like very much. This POV, details, colors and exposure are superb. You where very close! This is a very nice one with superb light in its eye! Well done and TFS,

Hi Mario,

Beautiful capture of the Chickadee. I love the pose and the colors and details are lovely.


Hello Mario! I've been trying for a shot this good all winter. Well done, a most impressive capture! Wonderful detail, just the right amount of softness and love the glint in his eye! TFS! Linda
