What a wonderful closeup capture from a beautiful bird, Michel!

Superb focus on its eyes and perfect contrast against a soothing blurred BG.
The colors are natural and POV is excellent as well.
The DOF is well kept too.

Amazing bird photography!

Kind regards,

Hello Michel.

I am in awe at the amount of clarity and true colour you have achieved here. You can even see a minute strand of hair at the end of the twig. Superb positioning and presentation, welldone Michel, first class image. TFS

What a sharp close-up of this goldfinch which really seems golden, my dear Michel.
A very sharp image adorned with splendid lighting. I like the diagonal branch on which the bird is resting.
Splendid details in the plumage and face features.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Michel,

Excellent capture de cette oiseau, ressemble un peu a notre verdier chez nous. Très belle texture du plumage et très bon détails, jolies couleurs.
Belle composition avec la branche d'arbre, un petit aire de printemps.
Il ne manque que son chant, Merci pour le partage.
Amitié de Belgique.

Bonjour Michel,

Superbe ce petit chardonneret, très bien mis en valeur par l'intervention de ton flash et des quelques rayons de soleil présents ce jour là!!!
Jolis détails et couleurs qui lui vont à merveille!!!

Bonjour Michel,

La branche cadre bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du chardonneret jaune. La lumière de l'après-midi fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
