Hello Marios,
a nice picture, well exposed with good white balance.
Also a good sharpness and nice colours. But I find it a bit tight cropped, I'm not sure about the square format is right here. A bit more space in front and less behind, maybe you could post a bit larger picture, you are allowed to post 800px.
Over all a fine picture.
Well done.

Regards
Gert

Hi Marios,
a pretty nice picture of this Ibis.
Pity its a bit over sharpen, we can see the halos around the dark plumage of the bird.
Also a be tight crop, more space in front and less behind make i better balanced.
Akrotiri must be a very nice place for birds.
Otherwise a nice picture.
Well done.

Super cool capture! I love rhinos, they look just like dinosaurs. I managed to get some shots in Tanzania but never close, I was very unfortunate in my quest, maybe next time? Thanks for sharing. :)

Wow! I think I would call that the planters peanut humming bird orchid. What an amazing flower. Almost looks like two hummers perched. Would be nice to see more images of this one. I am in agreement with the others as it would be nicer to have the part that looks like the head more in focus if not all of it. Thanks for sharing this fantastic anomaly. If you manage to take more of this species please ping me an email as I would love to see more images. :)

Nice close-up image. No doubt a very beautiful bird. I still have not been able to photograph this species. They are not native to Washington state at least that is what they are saying. I took a trip up the Washington coast a couple months back and actually saw one. I reported it to the Audubon society but they did not reply back, apparently they were not interested or they did not believe me. I never got a photo of it as I was not prepared plus the evening lighting was terrible due to heavy overcast. Still interest in going back to same location to possibly snap up some images of them.

What a beautiful capture of this sulfur yellow/white butterfly. we have something similar that flutters around over here. We take so many things for granted and most never realize the beauty in small things, but if one were to stop every now and then and get closer to natures smaller inhabitants there would be a bigger world to appreciate. Wonderful details in this macro of yours.

Hi George,
this is a classic composition wiht a small diagonal, nice to view.
Also a good use of the fill-in flash. Accurate WB and excellent exposure.
The sharp insect stand out fine against the blu sky.
Well done, MF.

hello Ram,
this is a really fine clos-up picture with good sharpness and nice natural colours.
I also like the fine POV and that the insect is well seen against the nice blurry BG.
Well dony, my friend.

Nice moment in time to capture with a good dynamic feel created by the splash and foot positions of the two main egrets. For me personally, I can't help wishing that the wing tip on the left was complete in the frame but as it is the picture still tells the story perfectly well.

Beautiful image, and especially love the reflection in the water. DOF is just about spot on, light and colours are spot on, to qualify this as a "critique" I guess that the only thing I might consider changing would be to dull down the bright patch (stone?) under the heron's beak which tends to catch me eye.

Lovely textures and colour to this little guy, he blends in so well. DOF is quite good, it might have looked better at a slightly smaller aperture to get the big real leg in focus as well as the body but at 1/50th sec you are running out of light.

Nicely done, the owl looks a little surprised! The directional light gives some nice shadowing on the side and the top of the head, but it would be nice to see more of the side and its colours. Striking image though.

Hello Srikumar,
it's a nice picture of the red-billed Hornbill.
I agree with Peter about the light but what do? not much.
Decent sharpness and a nice DOF.
Well done.

Hallo Jose,
you have captured this dragonfly in a very nice way.
It's sharp wirt a fine DOF almost the entire insect is in good focus and the BG is nicely blurred.
I like the nice soft colours.
Well done.
