Hi Christodoulos,
I was stunned by your beautiful bird shots so far - now I admire your talent in macro photography, too. Incredible capture with excellent composition, sharpness, colors and background blur. The bunch of red berries are very suggestive, mostly in the way you composed them to the pic, with one (but full) leave only. Masterful job MF! Bravo!
Have a prosperous new year, best wishes, László
