If I was left in a place like this for only a few minutes, I think I would go half way crazy. I would not know where to direct the camera because I am sure each single bird you point it to, the next one would be more pleasing to the eye and you would want to photograph it as well. There must be thousands of birds in your image, let alone the whole reserve. This is really a great image, which makes me quite jealous for you being so fortunate to be so close to a reserve filled with plenty of birds like on your image. Just looking at the lovely scenery, I see such a lot of photographic opportunities. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

Beautiful place and fantastic moment with a big group of egrets. I like the low POV and dramatic dark cloudy sky. Also good exposure on white birds
I like it very much

significativo titolo per questa spettacolare immagine, la presenza di così tanti aironi bianchi maggiori in questo bellissimo habitat è fantastica, splendida composizione che mostra con ottima definizione la bella prospettiva con BG degli alberi e del cielo, punteggiati da altri aironi.

Great shot for a "Group" photo competition.
Alas, paradise is not lost..
It's residing in Selen's digital files ;}
The egrets & cormorants seem to go on forever from left to right, great framing.
Well done & have a great weekend!

Even though the weather wasn't necessary the best here, this really looks like a paradise for birds and bird-photographers, alike :)
Very nice shot here - as wide as you could get here with that lens - showing the vast habitat and its numerous inhabitants.
I love the have that you've captured both standing and flying birds and the great DOF shows exactly how far this density goes.
Wonderful work and presentation.
Bravo and TFS

Merhaba Selen Hanım,
Burası gerçekten bir kuş cenneti olsa gerek. Görünen alanda yüzlerce kuş olduğu kolayca tahmin edilebiliyor. Etrafta kimbilir neler vardır. Buralardan postaladığınız kareleri ilgiyle izliyorum. Kimbilir belki bir gün oraları görme şansı bulabiliriz. Umarım:(
Emeğinize sağlık. Yeni karelerde görüşmek dileği ile. Hoşçakal.

You definitely had a lot of light at your disposal; 11x1/500...it's a dream.
Fascinating scenery. It's a scoop:-) and a photographic opportunity.

I did a good search to find all different birds in this photo. It's difficult. It really is a bird paradise.
Beautiful photo in fantastic natural colours and an excellent composition. Very beautiful!
Have a good weekend,

South America is the paradaise, and its jungles are the best. Biodiversity is bigger than any place in the world, the realm of birds. I like the huge heron number, remembers me the breeding site in my town, with th same species...but without forest.
A very well taken photo

A paradise indeed and for every bird watcher and lover this seems to be a place I doubt they would like to come back from. Outstanding shot with such beautiful lighting and superb POV. So many species and everyone wanting their own space and food. Great view and a marvellous image.

What a fantastic landscape with so many birds! Forest looks great as you have shown it sharp and with natural colors. The cloudy sky makes the photo dramatic. It gives also a soft light reflected by the ater surface.
Thank you for sharing,

A paradise indeed Selen!
A fine capture of this Amazonian Stork and Egret Reserve that you have taken seething with birdlife from a great POV and set in a fine composition to give an excellent feel of the place.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful image,
