A lovely capture of this bird doing routine maintenance on his feathers. The vireo's colors camouflage perfectly against the foliage of what looks like a willow tree to me. Great shot Yves.. and I can't believe I missed it earlier, guess I should use the search option more often.

Your narrative explains nicely what the images portray Yves. Thanks for pointing that out. Quite camouflaged in this pose but with a bit of a very tender look with the head turned back. Great shots.

Thanks Debra. I don't know the kind of tree but the bird sure has the perfect camo to blend in the foliage.

Back side with perfect camouflage to live a longer life ( and increase the chance of seducing a partner ).
