That’s a beauty with that yellow/green bird, Akira

Switch between internetproviders does not go smoothly, no connection at the moment.

The good news is that the Z9 is on its way.

In these bleak times of war inside Europe, even the snow bleeds red.

Thank you, John.  Lovely cat, as always.

I could imagine this image on a beautiful scroll - such delicate colors.

Thank you, Jack!  I think I was helped by the lighting.

The same tree welcoming a different guest.  This is a brown-eared bulbul (Hypsipetes amaurotis).  The former guest was a Japanese white-eye (Zosterops japonicus).

The bulbul is much more cautious than the white-eye, and I've never thought I was even able to direct a camera to it.  Shot with the same combo and processed in the same way as the image posted on the 1st.

One of Messiaen's favourite songbirds. The overall tone of the shot is wonderful.
