Hi Roberto,

Nice sharp capture of the bird, colorful bird against a green background.


Hallo Roberto
This is the second bird I see from your portfolio playing hide and seek between the green leaves. It is a pity I cannot see a full body shot, but the beauty of different colours of the plumage on the upper part of the bosy makes up for what I miss. This is a super shot of a beautiful bird. I have seen many birds with a variety of colours in their plumage, but this one is an absolute eye-catcher. I like the different colours, forming segments on the plumage. The rust brown almost red eye and the almost green beak place the cherry on the cake and rounds of this beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing this beauty with us.
Kind regards

  • Great

Hallo Roberto,

You hace used very well the DOF showing sharply the bird between two soft planes. The nird has very nice colors which are in a fine contrast with the green of the leaves.

Thank you for sharing,
