Bonjur Didier!

I bet it was fantastic trip! Bird looks great, full of colours and with nice eye. I like composition with many twigs and leaves around.

Very colourful and pretty bird, Didier.

Hi Didier,
Excellent capture of this beautiful bird.
Amazing colours and very sharp details,
great composition and good work on DOF.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Didier,
The colors on that guy are electic! Very wellomposed and framed. Detail looks very good. Excellent nots to support this excellent shot.

Hello Didier,
The bird seems to be real beauty. The quality of the pictrue isn't perfect, probably because it is scan. I like the framing here, colours are very good too. I find the overexposed spikes a little distracting though.
Overall, very interesting post.

Didier, the bird is indeed very beautiful.

Lovely colors and composition. I like pov and pose too.

This one has been scanned; maybe sharpness could be a little a bit better if it had not been.

J'avoue que je vous envie d'avoir pu prendre une telle photo, mais merci de nous le présenter, étant inconnu ici.
Photo techniquement très réussie et présentation bien réussie.


I saw lots of these birds in Tanzania in February, but did not get such an excellent picture as yours! Very good picture!
