Hello Phillipe,
Beautiful wing detail here and good timing, an excellent pose. Great light, good exposure and a great warm background. I'd like to see some more detail/light around the eyes, perhaps with some post-processing work or a larger image.

nice capture! nice warm light and colours, great pose and composition. nice backround too!

Foto molto bella e certamente non facile da ottenersi! Complimenti!

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele

Magnificent captures of the Bee-eaters!

Toute la série sur les guepiers est excellente, mais cette image est ma préférée. Quels réflexes pour déclencher au bon moment! En plus le détaill est irréprochable. Bravo!
