The little Redstart showing off ! Very "flamboyant" and, as it turns out, it is named "paruline flamboyante" in French!

I must agree that is a very pretty photograph. I find it interesting that you were able to control purple fringing and CA against a contrasty sky at 300mm. Job well done.

Thanks Tony.
Well, I don't even know how this is actually "controlled" in that specific shot (PF and CA). Luck?
But by looking at several photos in my Flickr account, a good percentage of those taken with the same setup/under similar conditions are just "as good" as this one. (read "good" with a grain of salt).
Then again, several are also showing CA and PF under different light conditions ... that's pretty much my unscientific observation., especially those with the subject being backlit.

He seems very determined to be seen.
