This bird has a length of 11cm, very small and cute. It can only be found in mountains in Taiwan(the altitude is about 1000~2500m), and they always gather together to play or find foods to eat. This scene is very lucky, it is just in the sakura flowers, I really like this picture, hope you too. :)
The original size is 3076x2052, and I cropped it with 2506x1671, then resized it to 800x533.
Thanks for all your viewing.

Incredible shot! You've got a nice selection of lenses...anyway, not here to write about the technical aspects of this shot (which are top notch), but about the image itself. I really like how the bird was "captured" in this sea of flowers...really makes the shot special a nice to look at. Well done. Excellent work yet again.

Beautiful capture of this little chap, crisp and clean, good light, nice catchlight in the eye and excellently framed by the flowers. Usually, it's recommended to leave the main subject out of dead center of a photo, but the way the out-of-focus stems look on the left, I think this is one instance where I'd overlook that and crop a good slice from the left to get rid of it.
bartove (2861) 2004-05-22 5:19
so beautiful!sharp, colorfull, well composed!
hispic (9652) 2004-05-22 5:20
Wow wonderful shot, Seattle. The cherry blossom surrounded the bird and has made composition and the color. A sharp focus on the bird is also wonderful, Fantastic!

This is quite a lovely photo...beautifully photographed with the sakura flowers surrounding this little bird! And it's a nice note, too, because it's interesting to know that they are only found in the Taiwan mountains! The little bird is pretty, too! Very wonderful photograph!

MoosicMan (1231) 2005-03-26 7:54
I've been looking at this one for a while, it's gorgeous. You must have worked very hard to get this shot! Keep going, man.
jstewart (1150) 2005-05-25 13:11
Have just come across your bird pictures. They are excellent. This is certainly one of the best. What's the name of the bird? It looks a bit like a cedar waxwing - a fairly common bird in some oparts of Canada.
Not many good bird pics on TE - I guess they go to TrekNature. I have posted some - you might want to take a look.
azadys (717) 2005-07-08 3:44
it's great shot. such a beautiful view of nature. great DOF and i like your POV. the color is great too.
