The gorgeous background tones complement this view of the waxwing perfectly. Excellent compo and detailing here and I love the pose you captured him in. This is so beautiful and deserving of a frame and a place on the wall.

Yves Langlois

You'r dam right about the background. It strike me out the first time I saw it on my screen. I should not say that but it is as beautyful as the bird (if not more). I sure have more chance to do that pose of a waxwing again, but the background is unique and will never be there for the next shot.

Jenny Stevens

Yes, I agree with the comments above. I had no idea of their beautiful colouring on the back side. Yes, it belongs on a wall. Excellent shot.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Jenny. It already won a six month apprearance on my personnal wall of fame, and the artist in me is delighted.

Debra Plett

Wow, absolutely stunning shot Yves. Cover page material for sure.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Debra. It happen that everything sets in ok for a great shot. It was the case.

Clifford Dupuis

what a great portrait of this waxwing. The vibrant colours and detail are amazing and are stark contrast to the soft bokeh. Well done on all counts

Yves Langlois

Thanks Clifford. Agree with you and quite proud of that one. Good for a cover page. That one will spentd few months on my wall for sure..

Clifford Dupuis
