Mr Black Redstart

By Mike_Young
Good day everyone Smile I am really chuffed at the response to my female Redstart image, her quiet appeal was enough to elicit four personal awards, for which I am delighted. Thanks go to Screco,Julia,Dave and Jason for their awards Smile and to all for the votes and great comments.

Today its the turn of the male, he wasn't as co- operative as his wife and insisted on showing me his back ! So here he is , hope you like him.

An excellent, over the shoulder glance at the photographer. Could this be a young bird? I ask because just to the rear of the beak is the characteristic yellow of a nestling bird. Regards Martin

A beautifully composed and captured image of this wonderful Black Redstart. Both the colour and detail is spot on. A delight to view. Thanks for sharing Mike.
