Perfect pov, focus and compo on this beautiful capture Yves. I love the vibrant colours of the grackle and new spring foliage against the clear blue morning sky.

Thank you Heather. That spot had few grackles, riding fast here and there. I chased them from a tree to another for many minutes until I finaly got that shot. Patience and pleasure.

Debra Plett

Very nicely captured Yves. Sharp focus and vivid colours make this image a very special composition.

Thank you very much Debra. The grackle is not at its best here. The overall texture, colors and composition is the point here, giving that shot the artistic twist I appreciate.

It last only few days in the year. When trees starts blooming new leaves is a special period. It provides a unique surrounding to birds photography. I specialy like the red new born leaves over the special blue of a cool air morning.
