Beautiful pure shot. Starlings are wonderful birds too, cheeky and full of personality.

Wow!
Je n'ai jamais vu une photo d'étourneau qui montrait aussi bien les couleurs que leur plumage a!

They're full of them here, in Paris! Pecking on anything they can find.
Beautiful bird, beautiful picture.

Clair. Beau et drôle à la fois :D
Faut les voir se courir après quand un du groupe a trouvé un truc. :rofl:
D'ailleurs, je ne comprends pas pourquoi si peu de monde s’intéresse à cet oiseau...

Ben je parlais surtout des photographes. C'est un sujet qui est très commun, très photogénique, et pourtant, on en voit des masses en photo.

On a à peu près la même chose à Paris... sauf qu'ici, ils utilisent des fauconniers pour les faire fuir ;-)

en effet :confused:
l'hiver dernier, ils sont venus plus près de la maison j'avais quelques bons shots faut que je les trouve ... j'en ai trop et pourtant je trie régulièrement :phew:

à propos de rapaces ... ici ils sont protégés et du coup ils attaquent nos pigeons :(
pas facile de gérer tout ça :hmm:

Le tri des images, c'est une plaie en numérique... rien de plus ch... Mais il faut bien y passer un jour ou l'autre.

Tu as des pigeons d'élevage ?
Car chez nous aussi toutes les espèces de rapaces sont protégées. Cela permet l'arrivée du faucon pèlerin sur Paris (grosse quantité de nourriture ;-) ) ils sont là où la nourriture se trouve. :-)

Les couleurs sont superbes et avoir réussi ainsi à l'isoler dans le cadre est remarquable !

This bird is so common and so easy to take on picture... but so few people put their lens on this common bird :-(

Yes, it is a beautiful bird. And my camera helped me so much to have enough details on the feathers.
Thanks ;-)

That sure are some uncommon colors! But I like it a lot! I respect anyone who can make a picture of a bird, tricky little things XD

Thanks a lot... but it was sooooooo easy to take him in picture.
They are not shy at all in Paris, and I used a quite good camera for it.
I was waiting for falcons... and this bird landed just in front of me.

Thanks for the fav! But don't you have to wait for a looong time if you want to make a picture of a bird?

You are welcome.
How is your fanfiction :-D ? (I know, I know, patience is a virtue, but sometimes, it is too difficult to wait)

For bird photography, it depends on the specie. For busard, I waited 3 days to see the first one coming, and 5 hours in my hide to take the first picture (and I was lucky the weather was very cold). But for falcons for example, I know exactly where to find them so I only have to get there and I have the pictures I want. It is as easy as that.

Cool! To read about the tactics of a photograhper :D I wouldn't have the patience xD

My fanfic is going well, just been very busy. But this week will be the last before the finals (of this period) arrive. And since I havee only one test I will have a lot of free time to write more chapters.

To be honest I'm a bit nervous, I wrote such a cliffhanger I'm thinking of what to write next. I hope I won't disappoint anyone!

Don't say that, it is sooo easy to wait, you just have to use your mobile phone to go on fanfiction... and read as many fanfictions as you want :D

Don't be too hard on yourself, you have done an amazing work until now, so there is no reasons it won't continue. But you are right, difficult to find something after that cliffhanger. XD

Have a nice sunday (here, it is cloudy)
