Hi Farid,
Your timing was very good, to capture the impala looking at your direction and the bird in such a pose. Commposition is beautiful. Well done and TFS

Beautiful portrait of this Impala, Farid.
Sweet lighting, BG and the bird adds a bit of humor to this peaceful shot. Nice composition.

Hi Farid,
Wonderful portrait without any doubt! The only minor defect I can see is a rest of post process in the background. Perfect pose and a very beautiful light.
TFS, José M.

Great shot and that lens really does wonders to the bg, love it.

Buenos contrastes.

Well I must say that I had never heard of a red billed oxpecker before! What an interesting photo. Outstanding sharpness. The POV is excellent and the nice even light is amazing. I love the natural colors and the exceptional DOF. And, that's a very pleasing background.

Wow Farid,
This is a very impressive image of this Impala. The quality of the image is superb. The fact that you captured the bird on the front adds even more interest to the image and it is an added bonus. I am certainly impressed it is beautiful.

Hello Farid,
Excellent image and well composed. The bird on the neck adds great interest.
Proper contrast would reveal lost detail, and a more realistic image IMHO..
A note would be a great +

Hi Farid,
Wonderful photo, great moment. Its a nice portrait of the Impala but having the bird on the neck just adds something special to the photo. The lighing is great, creating a nice comfortable warm feel to the photo.
best regards
