Fantastic photo, Tom! I love the action with the open bill and the two birds together. Calm nice BG enhances the impression.
Are the 500/4 your primary choice these days... if I remember correctly you also use a 300/2.8?

Hi Tom,
Very special photo of these Robin-chats in two different poses. The singing one is gorgeous. Perfect timing. Both are great in sharpness, details and colours. Beautiful blurred background and a nice composition.

Hi Tom,
Very nice shot of these Robins. Gorgeous colours
good composition and sharpness details.
Very good work.
Regards Jiri.

Hello Tom,
Very nice image. Fantastic clarity and outstanding details. What a interesting specie and nice too......The composition, the light and exposure are very good. Fantastic razor sharp details. Fascinating contrast against the green blurry background.
Thanks for sharing!

Through a balanced composition, Tom, you show us a pair of beautiful Cossypha heuglini; birds should not be often seen in TN (I had never seen before). I congratulate you for the opportunity that you've caught one of these robin in full cry. The whole is illuminated by a light calm, almost dreamlike. Thanks for sharing this great work, man.
