Bonjour Jose,
Il me semble que le téléobjectif écrase légèrement le sujet mais cela n'enlève rien à la qualité de cette super publication finement détaillée et délicatement colorée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Great picture José! Una nitidez estupenda, grandes y preciosos detalles, buena luz, color y una composición estupenda. Enhorabuena. Un saludo.

Great photo with very good composition, fantastic colours and impressive sharpness!

Dear Jose,
impressively lively close encounter. Perfect details that might even enable us to determine the prey's id. An excellent frontal approach, the blessings of a well shaping light from a favourable angle, a perfectly uniform distant background, skilfully dynamic off-centre composition. Great Image, nicely describing short notes. Thank you!
With best regards,
