You let the grackle be the star in this image.. and he stands out so beautifully against the sublime blue sky. An outstanding photo in every detail Yves.. and so very beautiful too!

Thank you Heather.

Very attractive image Yves. Nice composition and good focus. I like the size of the bird in the frame and how he stands out nicely against the blue sky. Also the small unused space on the left side of the frame brings your eye over to the bird. Very done.

Thank you very much for the super comments. I like that shot for quite the same reason you describe. Usualy that bird have a gloss black with lots of various coloured iridescences. First time I see it with a mat kind of grey. Like also that the branches are not dense packed.

This bird is top 3 on my list of best models. Always surprising and fun to shoot at.
