Hi Arindam,

This is a fine image of a Red-vented Bulbel. I always like it when a bird is shown calling -- in this case, for its mother. Your shallow DOF has resulted in a 3D effect. Very crisp shot with natural colours. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hi Denis,

Great view of that eagle! I've never been fortunate enough to be so close to one -- even with a big lens! Good use of the low ISO setting to enhance the quality of your image. Very natural colours and good details. Very majestic presentation. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hi Luciano,

What a superb macro! The colours and details of the beetle are excellent. The beetle really stands out on the fade-away, brightly-coloured flower. Very nice choice of matching frame for the image also. TFS.

John

Hi Jeroen,

Spectacular capture of that Eurasian Spoonbill or Platalea leucorodia (according to www.avianweb.com). The details that you've managed to achieve are quite incredible. Excellent colours too. The bird stands out exceedingly well against the blurred BG. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hi Gérard,

Beautiful isolation of the Centaurea cyanus flower. Excellent colours and details. I see you used your Nikkor 18-70. That was my first DSLR lens. I must get it out and try it again. It sure worked well for you in that situation. TFS.

Regards,

Hi Lucja,

An imaginative title for an (almost) soundless couple. When I lived in Connecticut, we used to often see Mute Swans swimming. Sometimes, I would see them on land also. But, I've never seen them walking on snow. You've certainly captured them with good colours and details. The different whites, the shadows, the non-white highlights, the serene birds, all contribute to this fine image. A very pleasant and restful presentation. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hi Anna,

Indeed, it's an ugly bird. But, you've captured it well. I've seen Marabou Storks before at the Calgary Zoo. Your shot, however, has a wild look that I've never been able to get at the zoo. It must have been hard to provide enough light on the stork with the bright blue and white BG. Looking at your gallery, it must be wonderful to be able to see so many different species at the Kruger National Park. Great image and informative notes. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hi George,

Wonderful macro! The combination of the crisp, colourful spider, and the subtle, blurred, complementary BG is first rate. Try as I might, I've never been able to capture such a terrific macro. So beautifully and artistically composed, as well. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hi Janice,

I see that it's been quite awhile since you posted on TN also. Welcome back! This photo is a superb one to return with! I love the eyes of your fox cub. The ears are right perked up, listening for anything that might indicate danger or food (depending on how developed his/her hunting prowess is at this point). The colours are great, and you've caught enough sun on the cub's face to show it off well. TFS.

See you,
John

Hi Pauly,

A very majestic animal. From your photo info, it seems that you were quite close. Good details and colours. I like the position in which you caught the Blesbok's head. Amazing horns! TFS.

Is the shot tilted a bit to the left, or is it just my imagination?

Regards,
John
