Hello Erwin,
though I have finish my smiley( I will repay soon!), Im called to tell you that this is a stunning shot.
The shines of the feather, sparkling
The outstanding yellow eye so sharply captured.
You have done very very well in rendering this exciting and magnifient view of well posed bird, a slight head turn.
Very very effective depth of field.

to me, this is real difficult shot as starling is very fast and fly away fast.


  • Great

Hello Erwin
Wonderful capture of this superb starling.
Excellent work!
Thanks for sharing

There are many of these in Kruger Park. They look so fierce with those yellow eyes!
This is a great capture, lovely pose and detail in the feathers, well done!

Bonjour Erwin,
Agréable publication valorisant relativement bien le sujet dont la photographie est particulièrement difficile compte tenu de sa couleur.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Erwin,
