Really nice capturs of this Rüppell's korhaan, love the POV and the f.4 has isolated the subject beautifully.
Love the light falling on the back and the long shadow its created, really nice work.
t.f.s Cheers Rick :0)

Hello Annick !
What a cute and gracious bird you have found here, I love its long neck, and I also like the pose in which you have captured this one. The light and the natural colors look gorgeous, and you have composed the picture very beautifully. Very well done !

The low angled light adds a lot to this image, Annick. It is a nice classic pose in a beautifully executed image. I like the toning colors that unify the image.

I like the way you have used the DOF, showing sharply the bird and isolating it from the rest of the scene. The sharp image is showing well the bird with good details of the plumage. Even if the lighting solution you have chosen, with light comming from behind the bird, is difficult you have got nice and naturaly looking colors.
Thank you for sharing,

An excellent capture of this bustard, the low-angled lighting and the OOF BG allowing it to be seen well and the sharpness is excellent.
I agree with your ID: it is a Rüppell's Korhaan.
Must be a new species on TN: congratulations both for that and the fine quality of this image!

Mooie foto van deze Rüppels Korhaan (vrouwtje). Ik heb hem daar ook gezien, maar alleen van grote afstand. Wel bijzonder, want zijn verspreidingsgebied is maar klein.
Genomen vanuit een goed laag standpunt in mooie natuurlijke kleuren en uitstekende scherpte. Een aanwinst!

Nice shot of the Bustard standing tall. Excellent sharpness and POV.
The perfect DPF isolats the bird from the background.
Thanks for the share,

This Bustard is looking very proud as it strides along! I like the low POV and the low llight casting a long shadow. Fine details and colours too.
TFS and regards, Ulla
