Hi, Antonio!
Welcome to TN with wonderful shot!
Beautiful bird and moment! Good DOF and colors.

The small thumbnail attracted me to this one, It looks like its carved into the stone, a fosil looking type of things. You have captured the detail of this bird very well. Its a very intersting subject but I think a note would have finished it off. Still excellent capture and awesome looking bird.


Hello Antonio.

Welcome to TN. I'm sure you'll like TN with such a good talent in taking photos.You have a nice catch here, good for both timing and sharpness with this exposure time.Well done.TFS.

Welcome to TN Antonio.
This is a very nice capture. Composition is great and good colours too. A good one, very well done. TFS.

Hi Antonio,
Welcome to TN. Colors, exposure, focus, POV are great.Cemil

This is an extraordinary photograph at many levels. The hoopoe is sharp, you caught it at the peak of the downstroke, it is sharp, AND it has food in its beak.
The only thing you didn't do was fill out the note. This site isn't just a "look at my great photo" site. Photographers should fill out a brief note, telling us about the animal or about how the photograph was taken.

Hi Antonio, great shot!
Amazing details and colors.
nice moment freeze.

Welcome on TN

Wow, Antonio. What a fantastic shot!
A warm welcome to TN.
Great capture of this hoopoe with the crest and the wing feathers all fanned out... and with a berry in the beak, no less.
The colors are stunning. Excellent exposure.
The details are very sharp, and the POV and composition are perfect.
An outstanding first post.
Looking forward to many more from you. : )

Hola Antonio.
Te estrenas con una de las mejores fotos de "bubela" como la llamamos por aqui que he visto en TN.
La pose es excepcional y el detalle de la baya en el pico genial. Nada que criticar.
Una pequeña nota es obligatoria en TN (por si no lo sabias).
Bienvenido a TN, que disfrutes.
