Hello Emin,
Great to see you back with an unique posting. Never seen this bird so clear, even not on a photo.
Beautiful colours, good sharpness and excellent quality for the difficult light conditions.
Enjoy the weekend,

ALMOST a real eye contact.
Lovely colours.
Sharp and great quality image. POSTCARD TYPE PHOTO!!!
Mario from Canada with regards.

Hi Amin
As Peter had said, I have also not seen the bird so clear, even in photo. Beautiful.

Do you think that if you had opened up the aperture further more, it would have sharpened the focus on the bird and reduced the focus on the background of leaves? Also some more information about the context in which the photo was taken would have been very useful.

Thanks a lot for the lovely photo.

My first view of this bird, and it is a beauty, Emin.
Excellent presentation with sharp focus on the subject. The colours are rich and natural.

Ciao Ermin, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose, excellent clarity, fine details, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
