Ina from Krugersdorp, South Africa

This is an outstanding photo in soooo many ways that the space provided here will not be enough to list them all! The colors, focus, contrast in colors, timing, creativity... light, shadows etc etc etc.
Well done my AM3 friend! You did a great job, you must feel proud! Did you trick him with the peanuts??? If you did, it worked out great! It is a beautriful bird, do you know its name?

@Ina: Thank you for the compliment. Gilles Martineau did an outstanding job here. I suppose he did bribe the bird with the peanuts, as they are very wary and flit about like guided missiles. It's a blue jay, a pretty common North American bird.

Craiger from Vacaville, California, United States

Love that bird!

medam961 from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

This photo is absolutely great! The shadow turned the upper left side of the photo into blue so the snow looks like wonderful blue sky. The bird is so cute and its colour is just wonderful. I like each detail on this photo and the way the bird was caught in the action right on time. I am impressed with this photo!

@medam961: Thank you, medam, glad you like this photo and we are always happy for your visits. Dobar dan to Sarajevo,
