Love that punk hair do of his, such a chipper looking little guy too. Your focus is spot on and the bokeh compliments his colors perfectly here in a very well composed capture Yves. Can't believe I missed seeing this one for so long too..

Thank you for the nice comments Heather. I am getting quite good at it now. When the conditions are good I am usualy satisfied of the shot.

Thank you for the comments Clifford.

Debra Plett

Very nice composition and detail Yves, the little guy stands out beautifully against the soft green background. The texture in the branch provides a nice contrast to the bokeh as well. Nicely captured.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Debra. For me it is very important to get sharp details of the branchs that compliment the subject. Glad you notice. Specialy if tweety bird is close at 400mm I use the F7 or F9 aperture. This picture is about very sharp details.

Most likely a swamp sparrow (picture beeing taken in a marsh). They always look terrific when they show with the punk hairdo. He does not sing with a punky beat though.
