Good shot. Very sharp and good colours. Caught in the decisive moment.

I love this one, Eyal...
Very good moment and very sharp.
Natural light is excellent. Compo is great. Accurate DOF; its habitat is well displayed.


That's a bird I've never seen before, TFS. You've captured it in a very nice pose, with the (fish?) being a nice bonus. The detail, composition and background work very well here. Great work.

Best Regards,


Hi Eyal,
Strange bird. Never seen it before. Very nice picture. Thanks a lot for sharing.
