Hallo Annick,
Zoals altijd een prachtig portrait. Deze staat er weer superscherp op. Genomen uit een mooie hoek met zicht op de rugveren. Mooie kleuren en achtergrond.
Zie ik nog heel vaag een bloemetje onder in de linkerhoek?

Hallo Annick,
Prachtig portret vanuit een verrassende hoek genomen. Heel bijzonder met die rugveren. De foto is erg scherp en mooi van kleur. Goede diepte in de foto met de vage achtergrond. Jammer van die onscherpte links.

Hi Annick,
Another great portrait! I like eyes alt! Very nice colors too/
Regards and tfs,
Serge :)

Hi Annick

It is very different from our magpies. Lovely bright eye and I love the glossy black feathers. Excellent pose and DOF



Allo Annick,
Nice to meet your new intro, this is some kind of a lense you have there :) This is another superb portrait of a bird that I have never seen in real. I think it has a funny name, Magpie... I love those colors a lot, beautiful exposure and catchlight. What is this spot left? It is a detail anyway. Well done!

It is most certainly a wonderful picture captive or not. Although they are much harder and faster in the wilds, it is worthwhile for education and notes. You are a very well trained or at least talented person.

Hello Annick,
another good pov with perfect sharpness, beautiful colouration and details of the Magpie!
thanks for sharing and the useful notes
