Hi Pawel,
Excellent photo. Colors and details are great! You've managed to catch the bird in an excellent timing. It is also very impressive that you did it with a 135mm lens only. Please make sure that EXIF data is included in the photo. Also, some more information about how you've taken this photo could be helpful.

Hola Pawel.- Me agrada esta bella foto de accion. Hermosos colores y exelente fondo. Muy nitida.

I like your very simple composition Pawel. The sharp bird against that lovely OOF background is very effective. I would like a little more information re: species and/or exposure. Thanks : )

This is a great picture. You were quick to capture this bird about to fly. The catch light in the eye adds life to the picture. The background is natural and colorful. TFS.

Hi Pawel

Is this lovely guy, arriving, leaving or did it get a fright? Either way, this is a great shot. Clear, sharp details and the BG is magnificent! :-)
